London’s newest resource for entrepreneurs is officially open, as the MVP Lab opens its doors to new tech-based businesses.
The MVP Lab, located in the Convergence Centre in Western Discovery Park, provides entrepreneurs with the workspace and resources they need to develop their ideas into a minimum viable product. Companies using the MVP Lab can collaborate, at no cost, with freelance designers and developers to create prototypes or mockups of their product, which can then be used to pitch to potential investors or customers.
“Moving from the idea stage to having a working prototype is a crucial step for any entrepreneur. The MVP Lab is going to make that leap possible for many new London businesses,” said Marilyn Sinclair, President and CEO, TechAlliance.
The MVP Lab also provides rentable workspace and meeting facilities, as well as convenient access to TechAlliance and the Western Discovery Park.
“I’m delighted that our government is supporting this innovative project that will help entrepreneurs turn their ideas into a business. This is great news for London. This lab will help people develop their ideas so that they can pursue their passion, start a successful business and help boost our local economy,” said Deb Matthews, MPP for London North Centre.
The MVP Lab is powered by TechAlliance and the Western Research Parks and supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
