I predict the experience of these companies to be filled with greater success, exciting product pivots, and that they will become a community of sorts, working together to create something unique and more sustainable than what came before.”
“We’re excited by the success of ScaleUP as we move into the fourth iteration of the program in partnership with WEtech; the potential for positive impact and prosperous growth for businesses scaling (back) up in a COVID-centric world is huge.” said Lori Atkinson, Regional Manager Windsor-Essex at Libro Credit Union. “Last year’s winner, IPM Scoutek™, continues to grow and provide home grown, cutting edge technology to the greenhouse sector, and ScaleUP was nationally recognized in March as a Concentra Empowering Your Community Award recipient”.
