Organizer Communitech

Organizer of Communitech Academy: Strong Leaders - Winter 2022

Communitech was founded in 1997 by a group of entrepreneurs committed to making Waterloo Region a global innovation leader. At the time it was crazy talk, but somehow this community managed to pull it off. Today, Communitech is a movement of more than 1,400 companies – from startups to scale-ups to large global players. 

Communitech helps tech companies start, grow and succeed in three distinct ways.
1. Communitech is a place – the center of gravity for entrepreneurs and innovators. A clubhouse for building cool shit and great companies.
2. Communitech delivers programs – helping companies at all stages with access to capital, customers and talent. We are here to help them grow and innovate.
3. Communitech partners in building a world-leading ecosystem – making sure we have all the ingredients (and the brand) to go from a small startup to a global giant.
