Holding its grand opening ceremonies on October 28, Hub350 welcomed guests to its new space at 350 Legget Drive in Kanata North to celebrate the co-working space. The 12,000-square-foot space is being billed as the physical gateway for Canada’s largest technology park, where tech talent will have a place to converge and explore opportunities to live, work, play and learn.
Announced by the Kanata North Business Association in January of 2021, the former Mitel office offers co-working spaces and a venue for the 540 companies and their 24,000-plus employees in the tech park to collaborate.
The Hub350 facility will bring together a range of partners including private companies, regional government bodies and educational institutions such as Carleton University, University of Ottawa, Queen’s University and Algonquin College – allowing for co-op placements, recruitment and specialized training — and to investors so that entrepreneurs can get their ideas off the ground. The goal is to connect members of the technology park to a wide range of resources that will support their continued growth.
“In addition to that, we’ve brought so many world-class partners to the centre that are here to roll up their sleeves and support these companies on their continued growth and momentum.” – Jamie Petten, President and Executive Director of the Kanata North Business Association.
