A community of innovators, entrepreneurs and artists in Downtown Winnipeg’s West Exchange District equipped with startup space, shared resources and Canada’s largest fabrication lab over four city blocks.
Aligned with North Forge Technology Exchange, we are revitalizing the West Exchange with a new generation of bold, risk-taking innovators, an emergent startup community and many of Winnipeg’s contemporary artistic groups. The creative density of Innovation Alley creates a dynamic network of ideas and people, capable of igniting the new organizations, products and services to fuel the future of our city.
Our Innovation Alley podcast, recorded at 321 McDermot Avenue and hosted by Michael Legary, takes the pulse of the city’s innovation community by profiling entrepreneurs and covering topics like intellectual property law, innovation-based events and all the relevant tech news and opportunities in Winnipeg.
