Introduction  |   Speakers and Panelists  |   Conference Program  |   Conference Proceedings

How can technology entrepreneurs grow successful companies in Atlantic Canada? Is the strong research base in Atlantic postsecondary institutions and government labs enough to ensure commercial success in high tech business? Can government policies and programs make a difference? How are the successful entrepreneurs doing it in Atlantic Canada, and is their experience unique or similar to those faced by entrepreneurs in other regions?

At the First Atlantic RE$EARCH MONEY Conference, successful entrepreneurs will share their experiences, challenges and triumphs in growing their firms in Atlantic Canada. Regional, national and international players will describe how other regions in Canada and around the world are coping with similar economic development challenges in today's global knowledge economy.

This event is a must for anyone running or working at an R&D-intensive firm, a government laboratory, a university or college, economic development agency or government department concerned with R&D or industrial policy.
