Here in Winnipeg, we have a reputation for being ambitious, moving beyond the basic, making existing ideas or products better, or creating entirely new ideas or products that stand above all others.
We have a history of building better products in manufacturing, leading cutting-edge research and advancements in health and creating technology that can be exported nationally and globally. We do it all...from Winnipeg. The private sector is also used to taking risks, being nimble and adapting to a quickly changing business landscape.
From mobile testing labs and 3D printers that make protective face shields, to adapting fog machines to disinfect large spaces, Winnipeggers and companies are coming up with forward-thinking solutions.
Others are retooling lines and pivoting to create products like safe spaces for patients, medical garments, ventilators and hand sanitizer that can have an immediate impact on this pandemic crisis here at home and around the world. Some companies you may have heard of, others you’ll hear about soon.
Right now, we know Winnipeg companies in the construction, manufacturing and technology sectors are working behind the scenes to meet the demands of this pandemic and new reality.
EDW is here working with some of those companies, as a connector to governments and others in the private sector to make it easier for businesses to take risks, get things done and make things better.
If you’re a company that needs help to remove barriers or get connected to other companies in the private sector, reach out to us through our Help us, help you contact form on our COVID-19 Toolkit page or through our team members page on our website.
Though we only occupy a small corner of it, we’re big on making the world better. We are here to make sure companies get the support they need to make that happen.
