"This week’s respected roster of speakers spoke about how we can all do our part — the way we can lean in, support the emergence of new med-tech initiatives and help these small and medium-sized enterprises get their innovations and technologies to market sooner. “It is in precisely these times, as we navigate unchartered waters, that new solutions are needed, that people look to innovation and we all have a role to play".
“There’s an opportunity for innovators and for investors and in this new world of ours, where an apple farmer can spin off a technology to become an industry leader in mask sanitization, there are so many stories that are taking place.

Claudia Krywiak, the president and CEO at Ontario Centres of Excellence.
