OPEN INNOVATION CHALLENGE

The need for innovation is everywhere. Every day we experience old systems, aging technology and traditional ways of thinking that hold us back from improving. There has to be a better way.

Our province has big challenges ahead and rather than expecting someone else to solve everything for us, North Forge has stepped up to help Manitoba do what we do best: Innovate. Through our Manitoba Open Innovation Challenge, we are putting the brilliant and diverse minds of our entire province to work on some our biggest issues.

EVERY TUESDAY IS OPEN HOUSE

OPEN HOUSE TOURS

Registration is required on  Meet-up.

Take a tour and discover how Manitoba entrepreneurs are starting businesses using resources from the Fabrication Lab. See 3D printing, laser cutting, computer-controlled routing, plasma cutting, vacuum forming, and many other processes that can transform wood, plastic, steel, glass, fabric and more, into prototypes. Learn how you can transform your idea into a real product or business. Experienced members will be on hand to help you understand the equipment and explain what North Forge Fabrication Lab is all about. Every Tuesday night 6 pm 3rd Floor, 125 Adelaide Street.
