Innovacorp offers Expert Office Hours to give our investment portfolio companies and incubation clients – and other friends in our pipeline and start-up community – the chance to sit one-on-one with an expert and pick their brain.

The meetings typically happen at one of Innovacorp’s facilities and are arranged by Wendy Villemure. You can reach Wendy by email or by calling 902.424.8674 ext. 1404 to book your meeting time. (Note: If you can’t make it in person, we’ll be happy to arrange a call.)

When requesting your meeting, please indicate your preferred meeting time and provide a brief overview of your business. If possible, include the goals of your meeting to help the expert be even more helpful during your time together!

Topic: Feedback Fridays

Every Friday, we offer an opportunity to meet one-on-one with Innovacorp staff, who will offer feedback on strategies, business models, pitches – whatever you want! This is not a pitch for dollars, but a chance to talk about ideas and gain insight from an investor’s viewpoint.
Dates and locations are available upon request.
