Women and immigrants poised to lead Newfoundland and Labrador’s tech industry
Heidi Wicks - Special to the Globe and Mail
"If cod fish is Newfoundland and Labrador’s past, its future may be technology.
"Powerhouse companies like Verafin and CoLab, and rapidly growing startups such as Genoa Design and Nucliq Biologics are some of the game-changing enterprises that have made Newfoundland and Labrador their home base. Memorial University’s innovation hub, Genesis Centre, is helping guide and launch many startups from the ideation stage onwards.
"A number of Genesis startups, including Milksta, Granville Biomedical, North Star Payroll, ReportMate, Adorify and Nucliq, are founded or co-founded by women, many of whom are newcomers to Canada."
