"ENTREPRENEURSHIP @ WATERLOO: What’s in the Water in Waterloo?''

The Waterloo Region punches way above its weight in technological innovation and entrepreneurship. It is home to a disproportionate number of Canada’s leading innovators, from established corporations such as Blackberry, OpenText, and Descartes Systems to scale-ups such as Miovision, Magnet Forensics, and Axonify. The University of Waterloo is consistently identified as one of Canada's most innovative university and many of its alumni are renowned entrepreneurs.  And we’re just getting started--investments in the future focus on quantum computing and amplifying the Toronto-Waterloo connection. Why is all of this happening in a land-locked region of just over half a million people? This presentation traces the history of the region and the university to determine what’s in the water in Waterloo.
