Managing innovation

As a manager, you understand innovation and the risk involved

At Mitacs, we can help guide you on that journey — an idea is just the beginning.

From idea to adoption

Innovation is intrinsic to building Canadian businesses, but achieving success involves more than just having a great idea — research and development, financing, recruiting talent, scaling operations and, most important, managing all those processes are vital, interconnected components to progress, profit and prosperity.

Putting all those elements into place can be a big task for even the most seasoned manager. Whether your role is C-suite, R&D, finance or running a project day-to-day it’s important your focus is on both the destination and the journey.
