Ontario Tourism Innovation Lab Seeks to Spark New Ideas in Windsor Essex

Windsor, ON – Founding Partners Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island, Southwest Ontario Tourism Corporation and Libro Credit Union officially announced the Ontario Tourism Innovation Lab at the St. Clair Centre for the Arts today.

This new tourism incubator is being launched with a pilot in Windsor Essex, Ontario, in 2018, and then will be expanded to other regions in the province next year. Its goal is to find, foster and support new tourism ideas, experiences and collaborative partnerships that will enhance the region’s current offerings, motivate travel and increase visits.

“The positive response from our partners and supporters has inspired us”, said Justin Lafontaine, Project Lead for the Windsor Essex Pilot. “Through those networks, we are looking forward to receiving applications from all corners of our region and our diverse communities.”

The Lab’s “Spark” Program will match selected participants with a tourism industry mentor and provide a $3,000 grant to help take their idea to the next level of development or implementation.

“We are proud to be the first region in Ontario and a Founding Partner for this initiative, leading tourism innovation in the province and showcasing what we have to offer and where we can take you” said Gordon Orr, CEO of Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island.

Participants will also gain access to a network of tourism innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders, and receive a guide outlining other resources and support services provided by their partners. This is the first program of its kind for tourism development in the province.

Applications from individuals, small businesses and non-profit organizations based in the City of Windsor and/or the County of Essex will be accepted from June 12 to August 1, 2018. After a review process, the top applicants will be invited to a Pitch Session in October where the 2018 program participants will be selected.

“Providing tourism mentors and a source of start-up financial support is critical to nurturing innovators and ideas that will grow tourism and economic prosperity in the region” said Lori Atkinson, Regional Manager, Essex Kent and Coach, Libro Credit Union.

The initiative is being led by Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island, with support from a broad range of partners including Southwest Ontario Tourism Corporation, Libro Credit Union, VIA Rail Canada, Pelee Island Winery, University of Windsor EPICentre, Caesars Windsor, Vistaprint, and over 20 community organizations and businesses representing the diversity of the Windsor Essex region.

Call for Makers: Mini Maker Faire Event Set for Saturday, February 24, 2018

Windsor-Essex is hosting its first Mini Maker Faire event on Saturday, February 24, 2018, at St. Clair College (main campus), 10am-3pm.

Our organizing committee is reaching out to the community in search of individuals/organizations who would make great participants. We have limited space, and want to ensure we have a great mixture of different categories and types of exhibitors, speakers and performers.

If you are interested, please fill out our form to tell us about what you’d like to do/show at the Faire. Here’s the link to the form.

So what’s Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement.  Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists and students. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. It’s a venue for makers to show examples of their work and interact with others about it. Many makers say they have no other place to share what they do. DIY (Do-It-Yourself) is often invisible in our communities, taking place in shops, garages and on kitchen tables. It’s typically out of the spotlight of traditional art or science or craft events. Maker Faire makes visible these projects and ideas that we don’t encounter every day.

The launch of Maker Faire was in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2006. In 2017, over 190 independently-produced “Mini Maker Faires” plus over 30 larger-scale Featured Maker Faires has taken place around the world, including Tokyo, Rome, Shenzhen, Taipei, Seoul, Paris, Berlin, Barcelona, Detroit, San Diego, Milwaukee, and Kansas City…and in 2018 will include Windsor-Essex!

St. Clair College Mobile Applications Development Co-op Program

A great opportunity to leverage local Mobile App Development talent.

The St. Clair College Mobile Applications Development (MAD) program is a three-year advanced diploma program. Students in this program are instructed in three streams: developing apps for mobile devices, developing web applications and game development.  The mobile app stream teaches students how to make native apps for Android and iOS devices. The primary languages for this stream are Java and Swift. Students work on development of desktop applications using Java as well.  In the web stream students are learning HTML, CSS, JavaScript, MySQL, and PHP. For game development, they are using Unity and learning C#. They have several other courses that overlap between the streams where they work with data (XML, JSON and databases), learn Agile development methodologies and study Object-Oriented Analysis and Design. Through student projects and assignments, students are given the opportunity to develop applications from concept through to finished product.

For complete specifics about all the courses, please visit: http://www.stclaircollege.ca/programs/postsec/mobile_app_dev/

The students applying for co-op would just be finishing up their 5th semester. The co-op program requires students to obtain a paid co-op for up to 50 weeks.  The co-op is to be completed between their 5th and 6th semester.  Companies that are interested in hosting a co-op student would post a position with us. Students would apply to the position and the company can choose the candidate that they would like to interview.  The company would select the student and present a job offer for a position that is in this field of study.

Students are expected to perform any tasks that would be required of any person fulfilling the position at the employer.  They would be expected to report to work at the same time and for the same duration.  Students will be reviewed periodically throughout their work term and we would ask that the employer assist in the review process.

Please note there are some government funding opportunities available to help offset some of the costs associated with hiring a student in the form of tax credits.

If anyone is interested in having a co-op student or has questions or would like more information, please contact Darren Takaki (ctakaki@stclaircollege.ca) or program co-ordinator Peter Nikita (pnikita@stclaircollege.ca).

Call for Nominations: Mayor’s Innovation Award

Celebrating 2017 Mayor’s Awards

Over its 125-year history, the City of Windsor has evolved from the foundations of a small town to becoming a key international city. Along with one of the most breathtaking riverfronts in the world, Windsor celebrates world-class technology, trend-setting businesses, a vibrant cultural community, and first class educational institutions and hospitals.

Windsor can be described simply as – a great Canadian City.

The success of this city is due in large part to the people of Windsor, people who have held fast to their belief in their beloved city and people who have contributed significantly to the Windsor we enjoy today.

I am particularly interested in nominations for those that have never been recognized for their service to Windsor. I encourage residents to think about the people they know who have quietly given time to making our community a wonderful place to live.”

Tech Start-Ups Take Fast Lane on Autobahn Program

For technology start-up companies that think the automotive industry is all about engines and tires, think again: German automobile makers want your ideas to help make the cars of tomorrow.

The Trade Commissioner Service encourages Canadian automotive IT start-ups/scale-ups  and related technology companies targeting or perhaps thinking of targeting the automotive sector to consider applying for the next round of STARTUP AUTOBAHN  – www.startup-autobahn.com  – which describes itself as “the spirit of Silicon Valley in the hub of mobility engineering”.  Canadian tech start-ups that “may not even have thought about supplying the automotive industry” might be well-timed to apply for the fourth round of STARTUP AUTOBAHN, a new innovation initiative to get technology start-ups to working directly with a key automobile maker in Germany.

Named for the high-speed German highway “Autobahn”—the only one in the world without a speed limit—STARTUP AUTOBAHN “is about accelerating joint projects between young technology companies and our corporate partners,” the program’s web site states.

STARTUP AUTOBAHN claims to be Europe’s largest innovation platform driven primarily by the German automotive OEM Daimler (Mercedes-Benz, SMART and commercial vehicle brands) in cooperation with Plug and Play of Silicon Valley.   Other corporate partners include Porsche, BASF, HP Enterprise, ZF and DHL. Located in Stuttgart, Germany the platform seeks “hard tech start-ups and scale-ups” at the nexus of IT and the automotive industries.   Examples of topics of interest include IoT, manufacturing, logistics, location-based services, cyber security, biometrics, natural language processing, process optimization, customer experience, and predictive analytics.  A focus on artificial intelligence / machine learning and quantum computing has also been announced.   In a broader sense, any technologies considered to be of benefit to the digital transformation of the automotive sector would be appropriate.

As the name implies, STARTUP AUTOBAHN offers a fast ramp up of early-to-late stage ideas and products by operating a couple of three-month programs annually.  Selected applicants will have the chance to work hand-in-hand with Daimler and other corporate mentors in the maker space ARENA 2036 in Stuttgart, Germany frequently on proof-of-concept projects.  Investment funding possibilities are not at the centre of STARTUP AUTOBAHN but may be available.

Applications for round 4 of the program are now open online – www.startup-autobahn.com – with a deadline of mid-December 2017.  Daimler has recently undertaken tech scouting missions to Canada and is keen to enlist numerous applications from the Canadian tech eco-system.  Selected applicants will begin their three month project in Stuttgart in March 2018.   Three Canadian firms – Acerta, GBatteries and fluent.ai  – were among the 33 companies chosen for round 3.  Daimler and the other corporate partners welcome an even higher level of Canadian participation for the next round.

The Canadian Consulate in Munich attended the first public presentation of the initial round during the “Expo Day” in February 2017 and has since worked closely with Daimler on its tech scouting activities in Canada.  Further thoughts on the suitability of the innovation platform for Canadian tech companies are gladly provided.

Please contact Kurt de Vries, Trade Commissioner covering Automotive and Ground Transportation, at Kurt.DeVries@international.gc.ca or 416-973-0645.
