Founders | Industry


The Emera ideaHUB exists to help founders solve the world’s most challenging problems in our region, and the world. The world needs an unprecedented technological transformation in areas such as energy, climate change, food security, health and wellbeing, transportation and logistics and more. In Atlantic Canada, we have ambitious goals for improving our communities and our ecosystem. We believe partnerships between The Emera ideaHUB, industry leaders, and aspiring founders can help us meet these goals.

To date, we have helped founders connect with leaders in everything from advanced manufacturing to data and analytics, and from artificial intelligence and machine learning to battery technology. Our industry and academic partners both at Dalhousie University and in multinational corporations make it possible for founders to make it through the ‘innovation valley of death’ and get products to market faster, with greater economic and environmental impact.
