When you are listed up there with cities like Madrid, New York, Paris, London, and least of all Silicon Valley, that is no small feat and it is not by accident.  It’s no secret that Waterloo regions tech boom was greatly aided by the widespread popularity of Research In Motion (RIM)’s Blackberry smartphones, but it is organizations like Communitech and The Accelerator Center which are ensuring that Waterloo will be well positioned in the global tech community for years to come.

Communitech, in collaboration with the Accelerator Center, is committed to helping foster the growth and collaboration of tech companies in Waterloo and the surrounding regions.  Their tag line is “We help tech companies start, grow, and succeed!”  Currently, Communitech boasts a collection of over 750 tech-centric companies that include large like Desire2Learn, ComDev and RIM, as well as a large collection of small startups.

We at iSystemsNow knew that this was a group that we had to become a part of.  Communitech offers regular events such as the Up-Start Breakfast series, which hosts speakers from across the tech world, recruitment and job fairs from some of North America’s top technical Universities, including the University of Waterloo, as well as peer review and collaboration groups on a wide variety of topics.

iSystemsNow is proud to join the ranks of Communitech.  We look forward to reaping the rewards of those who have blazed the tech trail ahead of us in Waterloo region, and we can’t wait to give a little back too.

iSystemsNow slogan.  We believe that everything is possible.
