Portage Innovation Centre
What is the P.I.C. ?
The P.I.C. launched in the fall of 2022 through an Innovate to Launch weekend where young (aged 15-30) innovators and entrepreneurs were brought together to bring an idea to the pitch stage over the course of the 3 day event. Participants worked with mentors and took part in workshops about innovation and pitching, before the final day of pitching to a panel of youth judges from the business and innovation sectors. In the end, 3 young innovators walked away with $1000 prizes and the right to work out of the P.I.C. offices rent free for the next year.
The P.I.C. is located at 32-5th Street SE, in Portage la Prairie and consists of a reception and meeting area, a room of offices and a fabrication lab (coming soon!) The office spaces will be primarily used by our Innovate to Launch winners for the first year, but there are also 'hot-seat- desks available to rent for shorter periods.
The P.I.C. regularly offers free workshops open to the general public, check out the RRC Polytech - Portage Campus Facebook Page for more information.
