Innovation centre eyed for Nelson

An innovation centre in Nelson would be great for the community.

This from Andrea Wilkey who is with the Nelson And Area Economic Development Partnership.

The group is applying for $10,000 in project development funds through the BC Government’s $75 million Rural Dividend Program to support the proposed centre.

If the business plan is successful that could lead to a half-million dollar grant.

The innovation centre would create economic benefits through the development of technology-based businesses while retaining and attracting tech-savvy workers.
