Halton community comes together for Haltech’s Annual Summer Social

On Thursday, July 26th, Haltech played host to 150 guests from Halton and neighbouring regions to celebrate achievements of the past year. The evening began with an initial cocktail hour and networking where guests had the chance to interact with Haltech’s clients who showcased their innovative products and services. Among the evening’s exhibitioners were iCare Home Health, TechLink, Creations 3DP, Kinjunxion, and Ergo Tech.

Jamie Barron, Chair of Haltech’s Board of Directors, began the official program with opening remarks and success stories of the year. Guests also had the opportunity to meet the new Executive Director, Shann McGrail, who led the panel discussion that featured three Haltech clients; Michelle Gorman of Kidictive, Alan Hopkins of Purity Gas and Rick Menassa of iCare Home and Health. Panelists discussed the challenges they faced as tech startups and which Haltech services helped them the most. Speakers also shared their own advice to Shann as she begins her new journey as Executive Director.

Haltech invited co-location partners TechPlace and MEV Innovation Centre (MEVIC) to speak about the services and programs they provide to the startup community in Burlington and Milton. Both introduced local companies who reside in their coworking space and benefit from their resources and networks. Haltech clients GoWrench Auto, Tech4life Enterprises Canada Inc. and MyAbilities Technologies Inc. shared their unique journeys and how the use of their co-working space has facilitated their businesses to take new shape.

Haltech would like to thank all clients, sponsors, partners, board members, and attendees for their participation and continued support towards emerging technologies and innovation in Halton.
