Innovation and Technology Showcase Returns to Fleming College
Peterborough, ON – (March 30, 2023) – Creativity, dedication, and teamwork will be on full display at the Venture North building during the annual Fleming College Innovation and Technology Showcase on April 5.
A highlight of the academic year, this event is a chance for Fleming College’s Global Business Management students to present the applied projects they have been working on.
Twenty teams comprised of 73 students are competing in this year’s challenge with a wide array of projects.
Some projects paired students with established, external organizations. A team working with a local non-profit organization helped that organization connect with community members and increase memberships, while another team paired with a Toronto office furniture company created a marketing plan to attract new clients.
Other projects include the creation of a parking app to help market unused parking spaces on private and commercial properties, where another project focused on identifying environmentally friendly ways to handle industrial waste.
After an initial round of judging on April 5, 10 teams will go on to the finals taking place at Fleming College’s Sutherland Campus on May 10. Student teams are eligible for cash prizes which are sponsored by IEEE.
Other sponsors for the Innovation and Technology Showcase include Community Futures Peterborough, Peterborough and the Kawarthas Economic Development, Ashburnham Realty, Peterborough and the Kawarthas Chamber of Commerce and the Innovation Cluster.
The showcase is open to the public from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
