EDL Celebrates Success Of Entrepreneurs At Tecconnect

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - The tecconnect facility on the north side has their first graduates.

 

GranDuke Geomatics Ltd. have grown their geospatial imaging business and will be moving out into commercial space. While GrowTec have secured funding in order to move their bio-energy project forward. They're the first two companies to graduate from the facility in the two year history of tecconnect.

 

CEO of Economic Development Lethbridge Cheryl Dick says "that's exactly the kind of thing that we've always wanted to be able to help people do, move through that early stage of development and right into the market."


Meantime, the newest entrepreneur to join tecconnect was also announced. Synbiologica is made up of a group of University of Lethbridge students who are working on a medical device that will test hormones differently.

 

With this announcement, tecconnect is at 80 per cent capacity with seven commercialization clients and three commercial tenants. Over the past two years, the incubator companies in the centre have created 28 jobs with over 50 per cent involving local post secondary graduates.
