On June 22, 2017, the Burlington Economic Development Corporation (BEDC) was proud to open the doors to TechPlace.
First announced at Mayor Rick Goldring’s State of the City address earlier this year, TechPlace will be dedicated to connecting, developing, and advancing new and growing technology companies. With the support of partners across the public and private sectors, the 8,600-square foot facility will provide access to space, programming, mentorship, networking and resources that are fundamental to growing a business in today’s technology-driven marketplace.

Home to Haltech, Halton's Regional Innovation Centre, and one of Canada's most active angel groups, Angel One Investor Network, TechPlace exists to help technology, talent and ideas come together under one roof to create and promote opportunities for economic growth.

According to Claire Green, Manager at TechPlace, “We know 40% of new jobs in Canada come from companies less than five years old.” Green continued, “At BEDC, we believe it is important to support the continued growth of these companies. This project has been in the works for quite some time, and we are very excited to see it come to life.”
