Staples Canada and Innovation Guelph have joined together to offer like-minded individuals who own and run their own businesses an opportunity to join a collective community full of support, educational services, and tools to help take their businesses to new heights. As their exclusive Regional Innovation Centre Brand Partner, Innovation Guelph is excited to share its award-winning program and event resources within the Staples Canada network of entrepreneurs, and conversely, to bring awareness of the inclusive and valuable products and services Staples Canada has to offer scaling businesses across Canada.

Staples Canada and Innovation Guelph will cross-promote services, events and offers that ultimately benefit small business and entrepreneurs nationally by sharing topical blogs, digital content, and hosting/co-hosting classes and webinars for businesses at all stages of growth.

“Innovation Guelph and Staples Canada share a commitment to champion Canadian entrepreneurs and small businesses,” said Gogi Grewal, Chief Services and Transformation Officer at Staples Canada. “This partnership provides an opportunity to support businesses with expert knowledge, unique products and innovative solutions to meet the changing needs of today’s landscape.”

Staples Canada’s Spotlight Virtual Events help hosts thought-provoking guest speakers, inspiring seminars, and educational workshops to help move small businesses and entrepreneurs closer to achieving their business goals. Innovation Guelph will promote and participate in these events and market their collection of workshops and educational sessions to the Staples’ community.

In addition to the collection of co-supported events and education, Innovation Guelph clients can join the innovative Staples Studio community (qualified clients will receive a discount) where ample space is available for coworking at hot desks, hosting meetings, and/or facilitating presentations and events; all while promoting collaboration within the community in a tech-savvy and welcoming space.

“There is a real synergy between our organizations and the businesses we work with that is both encouraging and inviting,” says Anne Toner Fung, CEO at Innovation Guelph. “Innovation Guelph clients will benefit greatly from the additional education, services and technology that Staples has to offer. We are pleased to be working with team at Staples Canada and look forward to the future opportunities this will bring for our community.”
