Atlantic Innovation Map

John Weigelt on Sep 03

Every time I visit Halifax and meet with InnovaCorp, The Norman Newman Centre for Entrepreneurship, The Dal Digital Media Lab and venture firms, I get to see some awesome innovation. The rest of Canada, the world, and sometimes even our fed government, doesn't see the great innovation happening here (uniqueltd.com, mindfulscientific.ca, titanfile.com are just a few examples). It would be great to have a location based platform (a map - like http://openturf.codeplex.com/ ) where entrepreneurs from the region could self publish (crowd sourced open data) their innovations that span a variety of industry segments (not just IT) to promote their innovation to the rest of Canada and more importantly- the World. Let's make it simple for Haligonians to shout their innovations from the rooftops quickly and easily.
