Discover Technata Hacks
October 5 @ 4:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Kanata North technology hub, a globally significant innovation ecosystem in the heart of the nation’s capital, is leading a new wave of collaboration in-order to transform the 1970’s industrial business park to a complete and connected living lab community of over 500 businesses and 33,000 employees.
Canada, along with the entire developed world, is facing at least two decades of growing competition for talent—the educated and creative workers who represent the most important resource for innovation industries and the entire knowledge economy. Knowledge—particularly innovation—jobs go where they can attract and retain the necessary talent. These places are decidedly “urban”—not necessarily downtowns or close in-city neighborhoods—but denser, walkable, mixed-use, amenities, and community-rich environments that support a diversity of live, work, play, learn and innovate lifestyles.
An initiative driven by Hub350, the gateway to Canada’s largest tech hub, the Living Lab aims to showcase innovative solutions to real-world use cases from within the business park and targets new technologies that will have impacts across all verticals, including commercial, residential, education, health, entertainment, social, mobility and the environment.
Together with the University of Ottawa, Carleton University and Algonquin College, we are thrilled to launch Discover Technata Hacks; a first of its kind hackathon initiative aimed at solving real world problems leveraging the power of 5G.
The Technata Hacks initiative will be hosted over a series of three evening events at Hub350, in the heart of the TELUS’ 5G Innovation Zone.
You must be a current post-secondary student in Canada and able to attend in-person to participate.
