Tech Triangle‘s insight:

Around this time last year, Cisco, in conjunction with the University of Waterloo,  held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Cisco Incubation Centre to nurture Canada’s next generation of entrepreneurs.

The ceremony, which also marked the announcement of a Cisco Research Chair in Smart Grid at the University, was attended by representatives from the Kitchener-Waterloo region, the University, and Cisco Canada.

The Cisco Incubation Centre, located in the University of Waterloo’s David Johnston Research + Technology Park, will primarily focus on providing local start-ups and students with the opportunity to take advantage of Cisco’s collaboration technology, expertise and global partner ecosystem.
