Ontario's Digital Media Hub opens for Business in Kitchener

Posted by Rob Lewis

In March Ontario announced $100 Million in provincial support for a major digital media innovation centre in downtown Kitchener.

Today the Communitech Hub has officially opened for business and is ready to foster the next generation of digital media innovation in Ontario.

The Hub, which occupies 30,000 square feet of a renovated downtown Kitchener Tannery building, is now home to startup companies, small-medium enterprises, and global multi-nationals all aiming to accelerate the pace of development of new ideas and products in the digital media sector.

Leaders from business, government, and community organizations gathered at The Communitech Hub today to recognize the expansive effort that has now created a leading-edge facility customized to meet the needs of its occupants.

The Communitech Hub will not only serve as a collaboration centre for resident companies, but will also link to other digital media centres across Canada as part of the Canadian Digital Media Network (CDMN). The CDMN headquarters reside in The Hub along with Communitech offices.

Founding partner companies who have contributed to the establishment of The Communitech Hub include Open Text Corporation, Christie Digital Systems, and Research In Motion.
