Fostering firm innovation: TO Next and the Conference Board Business Innovation Summit

The George Brown College study Toronto Next: Return on Innovation launched late last year offered some important insights as to the state of innovation in Toronto firms. In early December I was interviewed for the GTA Construction Report, which has been published in the January 2013 issue. Construction industry attitude more innovative than other sectors (page 3), by Anja Karadeglija, goes over some of the points emergent from our analysis of the results of the TO Next study.

And speaking of business innovation, The Conference Board of Canada is convening Business Innovation Summit 2013: Innovation for the Corporation in Toronto on 19-20 February 2013. It looks to be an excellent agenda. I'll be speaking on the second day of the conference on How Colleges Support Business Innovation and Commercialization.
