Invest Ottawa has opened a corporate Innovation Clinic.
The clinic will provide companies with a diagnostic of their competitive imperatives while aligning their innovation priorities and practices. It will also aim to help companies enhance their market performance, improve their competitive position, and acquire higher investment value.
“As our recent surveys showed, the real challenge for CEOs today is how to manage innovation effectively,” says Bruce Lazenby, CEO of Invest Ottawa. “The Innovation Clinic will provide CEOs a customized tool (a dashboard) showing the company’s competitive position, an assessment of their innovation investments, management practices and the alignment of their culture with business goals and strategies.”
There are 1,750 knowledge-based businesses in Ottawa.
Invest Ottawa delivers economic development programs and initiatives that increase entrepreneurial momentum in the City of Ottawa and its surrounding region.
