Innovation Economic Council release report on how Canada's tech startups can drive economic recovery after COVID-19


The Innovation Economy Council (IEC), formed by MaRSOCECommunitechDMZInvest Ottawa and CCRM, is a coalition of industry leaders advocating on behalf of start-up ventures at the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, and is looking at how Canada's established companies should work with innovators to navigate a post-COVID-19 world.

The group's first white paper, "The Post-Viral Pivot: How Canada's Tech Start-Ups can Drive the Recovery from COVID-19", examines how Canada's start-ups are best positioned to lead Canada's post-COVID-19 recovery, well beyond the bounds of the start-up ecosystem itself--and the consequences if they aren't adequately supported.
