4 Focal Point for Collaboration AcademiaIndustryGovernmentSupport applied industry-academic R&D and commercialization projectsSupport youth entrepreneurshipThere are three different groups that we focus on when we develop partnerships:Academic institutions: to locate ground-breaking research and spirited entrepreneursGovernments (both federal and provincial): to direct their funding in order to promote the development of the province and countryIndustry; private sector: to find market demands and connect academia with the private sector in order to commercialize for future prosperityAdvance innovation agendaDrive economic development outcomesEnable access to advanced research capabilitiesEnable access to highly skilled talent
5 Our MissionAccelerate innovation through game-changing research leading to successful commercialization and vibrant collaboration between industry, academia and governmentPicture Link:Overall vision and goal: prosperity from innovation
6 Our Core Competencies Innovation Enabler Capital Enabler Connector Trusted PartnerPicture Link (Innovation):Picture Link (Capital):Picture Link (Connector):Innovation Enabler:Bring funding and expertise together to develop new innovations with high commercial potentialCapital Enabler:Support capital through programs to provide capital or de-riskConnector:Link researchers, academics, angels, VCs, government, and others to help create new opportunityTrusted Partner:An organization that helps others succeed.
7 ACCELERATE COMMERCIALIZATION Our ExpertiseACCELERATE COMMERCIALIZATIONREDUCERISK FOR PARTNERSDUEDILIGENCECO-INVESTMENTOCE has strong expertise in de-risking innovation.This helps attract private investors and other funders to new ventures, ensuring a good return for tax-payers.Many small and medium sized companies typically overlooked by traditional investors have achieved success.We reduce risk by:Co-investing with the private sector - thus, sharing the risk between ourselves and partners.Commercialization of research - where we invest in spinoffs and startups, provide due diligence, support, etc. This process helps make the opportunity investor ready and customer ready. Furthermore, we assist in commercialization in several phases – starting with the proof concept through startup phase, then through first customer and alpha-beta, through to finally co-invest with angels and VCs.CUSTOMERREADYINVESTOR
8 Capital EnablerWe support commercialization at the earliest stages: co-investing with the private sector in applied research, technology and product development and commercial demonstration.We focus on three core areas: youth entrepreneurship, commercialization of academic IP, and bridging the gap between industry and academia.We not only act as a source of seed financing for new start-ups, but also a broker to attract other investors (i.e. angel investors and VCs)This can lead us to hold equity positions, as we ourselves invest in the start-ups, along with leveraging resources from our strategic partners.
9 We bring together the key players in the innovation ecosystem. ConnectorWe bring together the key players in the innovation ecosystem.PICTURE LINK:The Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) partners with key players in the innovation ecosystem to drive commercialization, technology transfer, and the development of highly qualified personnel.From referrals to collaboration agreements and co-investments, OCE works with its partners to make companies more innovative, facilitating increases in their growth and profitability through industry-academic collaborations.(source: OCE-ontario.org)Innovation EnablerCapital EnablerConnectorTrusted Partner
