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.
