The Lazaridis Institute for the Management of Technology Enterprises was created in 2015 to support growth-oriented Canadian technology companies. Developed through investments by Mike Lazaridis and the Government of Ontario, the Lazaridis Institute helps current and emerging technology firms to scale rapidly into globally competitive organizations. The Lazaridis Institute is based at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, part of the Waterloo Region РToronto Tech Corridor. We create knowledge, share intelligence and build collaborative networks to strengthen Canada’s technology ecosystem, and the business leaders and students central to it.
