Managing innovation

The road to innovation can be challenging

Mitacs can help your organization pave the path to success.

Build a better world through innovation

Innovative programs, services and initiatives are intrinsic to Canadian not-for-profits, 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 funding, R&D, recruitment, or running a project day-to-day, it’s important your focus is on both the destination and the journey. 

Lead the way with Mitacs

From assessing your needs to accessing and recruiting skilled talent from colleges and universities across Canada and abroad, Mitacs’s 20-plus years of experience in the innovation ecosystem have led to thousands of successful research collaborations. Our business-development advisors help organizations find, implement and manage top-tier research interns, which allows managers to focus on their primary objective: taking ground-breaking ideas from concept to reality.
