The Innovacorp gang, we keep ourselves pretty busy. With so much momentum in Nova Scotia’s technology community, there’s a lot of world-changing start-ups around for us to try to find, fund and foster.

But we all know “working hard” is hardly enough. We wanted to see whether we’re really helping Nova Scotia start-ups.

So we found some independent experts to assess the work we do. They surveyed Innovacorp’s clients to evaluate our impact on start-ups.

The survey included clients that received investment, incubation services, and competition awards from us. A subsequent statistically-validated analysis of the results from the 78 companies that responded – an 81 per cent response rate – showed we are making a difference for technology start-ups in Nova Scotia.

You can read the 400-pound report we got back from the experts. Or view the infographic we created to summarize the results. Better yet, check out the animation for some quality edutainment
