“We are so grateful to have had The Forge early on in our startup journey. The Forge gave us access to co-working space with like minded individuals, resources to validate our early product iterations and some of our first press ever! We’re proud alumni of the incubator.”
“EMN wouldn’t be around without the support of The Forge. This is a model that helps entrepreneurs learn quickly, build confidence, and network with other entrepreneurs who are also in the trenches.”
“As we grew from a small startup based in a downtown Hamilton apartment, to two office facilities within McMaster Innovation Park, The Forge has helped to mentor us every step of the way.”
“The Forge offers us not only a space to work from, but also access to prototyping equipment, a range of mentors as well as funding opportunities. In our residency at The Forge we have secured funding, grown our team and are closing in on completion of our first product.”
“The Forge was instrumental in supporting the company in its original incarnation as CareKit Health. CareKit came to The Forge in 2015, leveraging its mentoring, networking, fundraising and prototyping services. The Forge helped CareKit connect with potential customers and granting agencies, which ultimately helped attract the attention of Reliq Health, leading to its acquisition of CareKit for $2 million.”
