Innovation: Fleming College Students To Utilize New Space In Downtown Cube

The Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster (GPIC) has announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding with Fleming College. Fleming will occupy 1,000 square-feet of dedicated space for use by business and technology students in the newly expanded downtown incubator located in the newly launched VentureNorth building at 270 George St. N.

“At Fleming, we are always seeking new ways to enhance work-integrated learning," says Maxine Mann, Dean of the School of Business and the School of Trades and Technology. "We know the actual nature of work is changing with innovation, entrepreneurism and synergies amongst technology and business being keys for the future success of our students and our communities. This space recognizes this change and allows our students to gain the skills needed for this cultural shift."

The Applied Project space will be integrated into the current youth zone for entrepreneurs under 29 years of age, which is located on the 3rd floor of the VentureNorth building.

“We’re very excited about the deep level of collaboration between GPIC and the Fleming College staff and students," says Michael Skinner, President & CEO of the Innovation Cluster. "Our past partnership through the FastStart program has already proven to help generate the awareness among students about entrepreneurship as a career path."
