As anticipation around the tech park’s new innovation centre, Hub350, continues to build, the Kanata North Business Association has been busy drumming up support for the space from some of the area’s biggest names.
Telecommunications giant – and former tenant of 350 Legget Dr. – Mitel recently partnered with the technology park business association to sponsor and name the centre’s state-of-the-art boardroom.
As one of the first companies in Kanata North, it was a natural fit for Mitel to be involved in the next generation of innovation, says Al Hurren, senior vice-president of product development at Mitel.
“With Hub350 being constructed in our previous headquarters, it creates a special connection for the Mitel team and we look forward to seeing Hub350 become a centre of innovation that helps more cutting-edge companies to grow and succeed,” he says. “As longtime residents of Kanata North, it’s an honour for Mitel to partner with KNBA on this exciting project.”
Local management consulting firm Stratford Group has also joined the Hub350 team as an associate sponsor, a move president Jim Roche says is fueled by the company’s desire to give back and inspire the community.
“We are delighted to partner with Hub350 and look forward to contributing to the continued success of Canada’s premiere technology park,” he adds.
The KNBA team is working closely with its partners and Hub350 designer Linebox Studios to prepare for the grand opening of the collaboration space in late August.
