Memorial, CNA’s startup incubator receives investment from Canada, NL


The Navigate Incubator and Makerspace–a partnership between Memorial University and the College of the North Atlantic–has received over $1M from a recent funding boost from the Government of Canada and Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. The joint investment will go towards the space’s general operations and programming, as well as the purchase of specialized equipment for its training areas, carpentry and welding shops, and the clean makerspace. “This investment means residents of the whole region, and their collaborators, have access to cutting edge technology, expert advice, and a comfortable environment in which to grow the next great ideas,” said Memorial VP, Grenfell Campus Dr Ian Sutherland.
