As a mentor, I found that the sum was greater than the whole of the parts. The IG team has broad experience and people of vast expertise. It was a great resource to be able to tap one of my colleagues for ideas or contacts to help move a client forward.
John Pickard
CBaSE has been able to expand its program and service offerings to students, businesses and community members due in large part to the mentorship, insight and partnership we have with Innovation Guelph. CBaSE looks forward to what the next five years will bring working with the IG team.
