“The City of Kingston has established a great partnership with Innovate Kingston over the last few years, as we work towards a shared vision to build world-class technology firms right here in our community. iK has played a vital role in helping to promote innovation and entrepreneurship, and generate new jobs and investment in the local tech sector. Thanks to the iK-City partnership, the old Portsmouth Town Hall has been transformed into a leading edge incubator space for technology startups. As a city we depend on strong partnerships across the community to push forward our goals and I’m proud of the things we’ve accomplished together with iK. I look forward to continuing to work together to encourage innovation in every sphere of our community as we build a smart 21st century city.”

Each event we’ve hosted with them has been such a success due to their friendly staff and their commitment to the Kingston tech community.
