Vision & Mission

Where Canada’s Deep Tech Community Converges

NanoCanada is the network for innovators in deep tech, nanotechnology, and advanced materials.

Our growing community includes more than 350 members from industry, academia, and government who are solving the world’s toughest challenges by working together.

Our Network Formed to Bring Breakthroughs to Life

Before 2015, there wasn’t an easy way to access resources, support, and partners in the deep tech industry. Especially not from one place. That’s when our founder, Marie D’Iorio, saw an opportunity. Her vision? To facilitate partnerships and collaborations that bring scientific breakthroughs to the national and international marketplace. And, to do so by creating a network that helps members reach their full potential.

We’re One of a Kind

NanoCanada is the only multidisciplinary, multi-sectoral network of its kind in Canada. Whether you’re an individual with a great idea, a new operation with an exciting product, an established industry partner, a member of academia, or a public agency or organization, we’re here for you.

Members are at the Heart of our Work

People often join NanoCanada for knowledge, connections, and resources. Eventually, members find that they get all of this and more — including a support system, new friends, and a welcoming community to stand beside them on their path to growth.

Connecting members to the larger deep tech ecosystem is why we exist. It’s part of what drives our core values of collaboration, trust, integrity, respect, and service.

Innovation at the Edges

Deep tech is often cultivated by scientific innovation and meaningful engineering innovation. Examples include cleantech, agtech, artificial intelligence, quantum computing, nanotechnology, advanced manufacturing, and biotechnology. Deep technologies are novel and lend themselves to cross disciplinary and cross sectoral approaches that are needed for today’s climate change and regenerative sustainability issues.
