Clickback is now the proud new owner of 110 James Street (our future home). But that’s not all. We also plan to build a new innovation and technology hub there.
Why an Innovation & Tech Hub?
As Niagara starts to break out of its traditional manufacturing label, we believe having a 3,782 square-metre building solely dedicated to technology and innovation in the downtown core of St. Catharines will help to further revitalize the Niagara Region (while bringing some much needed ‘tech flair’ to the area).
We’ve paid close attention to what has occurred in Kitchener-Waterloo with the ‘tannery’ and other similar models for attracting and centralizing professional technology firms in other communities.
We now believe it’s time for Niagara to be a hotbed for technology, incubation, start-ups and venture-backed companies within Canada.
In addition to building the innovation & tech hub, we also plan to do our part by going from 30 employees to 60 within the next 12 months, which hopefully means hiring a few more local graduates & talent.
We hope to move in at the end of May or early June after doing some (dare we say) pretty awesome renovations. Stay tuned.
Thanks for the Support
Like any good story, spoilers are bound to get out. Hope you enjoy these ones from iHeart Radio, St.Catharines Standard, Greg Chew and Welland Tribune. We’d also like to give special thanks to Mayor Walt Sendzik for endorsing this project.
Thank you all for the shout-out and support!
