Mind to Market Award

Mind to Market 2020
Award for Outstanding
Research Collaboration and Commercialization


OCE’s Mind to Market Award celebrates the best OCE-supported research collaboration, between the business and research communities, resulting in effective commercialization of leading-edge ideas and solutions. 

Award recipients will exemplify the success that is possible when the brightest minds in industry and research collaborate to address today’s most critical issues. The award will build awareness for their achievement and should inspire others to adopt a collaborative approach to research, commercialization, and ultimately the building of a more vibrant society and competitive economy for Ontario. 

Nominations for this award are advanced by the OCE Business Development Manager community.  Winners are announced at our Annual General Meeting. Mavennet Systems Inc. and Ryerson University were named this year’s winners on November 20, 2020.
