Mitacs Business Growth Panel: How To Find New Talent and Advance Product Development

April 16 @ 8:45 am - 10:30 am


*Registration/Refreshments at 8:45am

Calling Engineering Managers and HR recruiters! This in-person event focuses on identifying new talent. Maybe you’d like to have candidates work on a project before making an employment offer? Perhaps you’re thinking about a side project but don’t have the budget for full-time permanent employees? Join us for panel discussions to hear examples of similar companies collaborating with universities to obtain exceptional talent and acquire funding to offset development budget.

What you’ll learn in this webinar:

  • How a major employer utilizes university talent to explore applications for new technologies
  • How a small company developed a successful new product offering with access to university talent
  • About a Kanata-based branch office that became the corporate centre of excellence through new talent and increased headcount while accessing funding
  • A well-established SME who pivoted to a higher-margin business through a funded project in collaboration with a local university
