About the COVID Innovator's Series

Innovation York collaborating with the City of Markham and MSBC to launch the COVID Innovators Series. The COVID-19 Global Pandemic has forced our innovators and entrepreneurs to redefine the norm and adapt to a completely new and unprecedented environment. As the schools, businesses, and industries evolve over night to cope with the physical distancing measures, we want to place a focus on the individuals in our entrepreneurial community who are braving this storm.

Set to launch mid-June during Markham’s Innovation Month, the webinar series will explore the human and innovation element of the new normal. The 12 sessions delivered from June to September aim to drive positive conversations and share helpful insights to support our communities with adjusting to the new realities of physical distancing and virtual connectivity.
