Southwestern Ontario is home to determined innovators, world-changing ventures and some of the fastest-growing companies in Canada. When we enable them with valuable business resources, create access to capital and activate connections that open new doors, they become key drivers of prosperity in the innovation economy.
With this impact in mind, TechAlliance welcomes the addition of a Senior Strategic Advisor to our Venture Growth & Corporate Innovation team.
Susan Smedley is an experienced leader with an impressive history of building brands, teams and bridges. Susan comes equipped with a unique blend of strengths cultivated through diverse environments, from a technology startup, to a venture capital fund group supporting Canadian science and technologies, and an established fourth-generation family-owned business acutely focused on innovation and differentiation globally through technology.
“My career path has taken me to many unique and eventful places,” she says. “I’ve had the opportunity to work in a startup environment, then shift to a role where I supported innovation from a financial perspective, and finally lived the entrepreneurial spirit through a later-stage company shifting its focus within the technology space. Now, I am motivated by the opportunity to play a hands-on role in the success of regional companies.”
