INNOVATION IN ATLANTIC CANADA

FROM WORMS AND LOBSTER TO COMMUNICATION GIANTS

OceansAdvance and the Genesis Centre are partnering to host John Risley of Clearwater Seafood and Brendan Paddick, Chair of the Nalcor Board for an exciting evening of Yarns & Networking as part of their Innovation Week activities.

 

These two prominent Canadian business men will tell the tale of how a kid from Grand Falls, NL who sold worms to a local sporting goods store and a guy from Halifax who sold lobster from a shop in the small town of Bedford, NS go on to form and then sell a Caribbean communications company for an impressive $4.4B CDN!

 

Join us on Thursday, May 11, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. @ Innovation Hall in the Bruneau Centre, Memorial University to hear the fascinating story of these two Atlantic Canadians and how their innovative ideas, entrepreneurial spirits and drive made them the successes they are today.
