Transition: The Bridge

The Bridge is an incubator at the Emera ideaHUB which helps students, researchers and faculty start tough tech companies and transition to the larger startup community and innovation ecosystem (e.g. Volta, Innovacorp, COVE, CDL-Atlantic), and supports these ventures for up to two years while they complete the steps necessary to “de-risk” their technology through accelerator programming as well as engineering and technical support. ¬†Bridge is the program which specifically supports tough tech startups by bridging the gap between discovery and commercialization to help students, researchers and faculty bring tough tech to market and transition to the larger startup community and innovation ecosystem.¬†Teams participating in the Bridge will have space on the third floor of the Emera ideaHUB for 12 to 24 months, and receive access to mentorship, expert advice, prototyping equipment and funding.
