Innovation4D, which took place in Mississauga, Ontario on Monday, October 16, was organized by the Innovation Hub and its partners to provide Ontario green tech start-up companies with the opportunity to pitch venture capitalists on their innovations. The Hon. Reza Moridi, Minister of Research, Innovation and Science, along with Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie, were on hand to open the event. The Innovation Hub was recently cited as a major reason for Toronto’s place on the list of the Top 10 Cities for Corporate Innovation. Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie presented a certificate of recognition to executives of GreenCentre Canada (GCC), the Research Innovation Commercialization Centre (RICC), and the Xerox Research Centre of Canada (XRCC), at the inaugural event at the XRCC’s Innovation Hub in Mississauga.
