Innovation Factory and the LiON’S LAIR competition have a longstanding partnership with McMaster Innovation Park. As a year-round Innovation Factory sponsor, McMaster Innovation Park has been actively involved in fostering innovation and growth in local Hamilton startups.

McMaster Innovation Park spoke with us about their impactful contributions to the Hamilton startup ecosystem and why they love supporting LiON’S LAIR. 

Our partners make LiON’S LAIR possible. Because of their support, local entrepreneurs are able to reach their goals faster. We are proud to feature invaluable tips, advice, and information from our partners for startups and small businesses in Hamilton!  

MIP is a proud supporter of LiON’S LAIR!

McMaster Innovation Park, located less than two kilometres from the internationally acclaimed McMaster University, is a premier research park that offers collaborative space for researchers and entrepreneurs alike to co-locate, connect and commercialize. We help tenants transform their ideas from vision to commercial opportunity.

We are so very excited to participate as a Sponsor of LiON’S LAIR. We love to be involved and support Hamilton’s entrepreneurs as we are committed to developing and sustaining an environment that fosters and supports new ideas, technology and research. Hamilton’s exceptional entrepreneurs transform these brilliant new ideas into viable businesses, bringing jobs and prosperity to our Hamilton community. Hence the reason it is so important to us that we support LiON’S LAIR and Hamilton’s talent.

There is some very strong competition among the top ten finalists this year. We hope that this year LiON’S LAIR winner will have as much success as last year’s winner Nix Sensor Ltd. who is a current tenant here at MIP.

The future holds opportunity and potential for Hamilton entrepreneurs. Wake up tomorrow and notice your glass is half full, bring innovation and concepts to Innovation Factory and make them a reality. We are routing for all Hamilton Entrepreneurs. Best of luck LiON’S LAIR finalists!
