Innovation is everywhere here in Hamilton, but that’s especially true at McMaster’s Innovation Park (MIP). Located on Longwood Road, just under 2 km from McMaster University’s campus, MIP is home to over 40 businesses and organizations, Canmet Materials – Canada’s largest metals and materials research facility, and the McMaster Automotive Resource Center.
Zach Douglas, MIP’s President and CEO joined Robyn, Innovation Spotlight’s host, at CFMU’s studios to talk about the role of an innovation park in fostering new businesses. They also discussed how MIP compares to other innovation parks and the advantages to becoming part of a collective like MIP. To listen to the full interview, check out the SoundCloud clip below.
