Happy Holidays To Our Valued Entrepreneurs, Investors, Sponsors/Partners & Friends of NOA
What an unprecedented year this has been. Many of you have had to pivot your business and develop new strategies to survive COVID-19. Our statistics show that the percentage of manufacturing and technology businesses have increased.

We like many organizations switched up to developing virtual content and events to keep you informed. Thank you to our Gold sponsors for co-hosting these events with us. We have an exciting lineup of zoom events for 2021 that we will be sharing on our social media and website.

Special thanks to Chris Winrow, outgoing Chair for your term on the NOA Board, your expertise and leadership brought us to a new level. We welcome Donna Smith, our incoming Chair and our new incoming Executive Director, Dalton MacFarlane. Many thanks to our Sudbury NOA Consultant Peter Dal Bianco who is retiring after many years of mentoring and taking the lead with technology entrepreneurs and increasing our investor base in Sudbury. Peter will now be the lead on the new Northern Ontario Accelerator Fund.
