There was a lot of exciting news in Waterloo over the last month.
One of the reasons Waterloo, Canada has emerged as a haven for companies looking to scale, expand to the North American market, and grow their talent pipeline is our deep and growing community of industry support organizations.
From local universities and colleges to incubators, hubs and everything in between, Waterloo’s community is geared toward helping businesses succeed.
Last week, Waterloo-based BlackBerry announced that it has acquired Cylance, an artificial intelligence and cybersecurity company, for $1.4 billion. This acquisition makes BlackBerry – once known primarily for building the world’s most secure smartphones – one of the world’s largest cybersecurity firms.
A new report that seeks to shine “a light on the Waterloo region technology scene” using publicly-available company information has found that the local tech community is exceptionally diverse, operating in more than 60 different sectors of the economy.
