We’re marking Innovation Guelph’s 10th anniversary with stories about its past, present, and future. As part of this series, meet Steve Barrett, who has been a mentor with Innovation Guelph since 2012. We invited Barrett to share his thoughts on the organization reaching this remarkable milestone.  

Steve Barrett serves as a mentor and was also one of Innovation Guelph’s first clients. His company’s invention was too early for its time and did not move forward. Instead, IG asked Steve to join as a mentor – and we’re lucky to have him on board.    On the 10th Anniversary of Innovation Guelph, Steve said, “I’ve seen the innovation centre concept mature first-hand. IG has done a remarkable job of evolving into a highly relevant and valuable partner to its communities and clients.”  Steve added, “IG has established a community that warmly welcomes entrepreneurs to learn, connect with like-minded innovators, and accelerate themselves and their business.”  Congratulations IG Team!  It has been an honour to be part of this journey.  –- Steve Barrett, Innovation Guelph Mentor
