Fresh Innovators Waterloo Region

Flipping Mindsets. Taking Risks. Sparking Change. 

That’s what Fresh Innovators Waterloo Region presented by Cook Homes is all about. 

Once a way for organizations to set themselves apart, innovation is now a necessary survival skill for organizations. Whether you look at government, non-profits, tech, education or healthcare, innovation is all around us in Waterloo Region. 

Join us for a day-long conference-style event focused on celebrating innovation and leadership. Fresh Innovators is where you will hear directly from those in our community making change happen. You’ll hear about the high points and the successes, but you will also learn about the lows, and how local leaders overcame the obstacles and challenges they met along the way. 

Attending Fresh Innovators Waterloo Region means that you might just:

  • Flip your perspective and learn to look at challenges from different angles and viewpoints.
  • Spark new ideas and start thinking outside the box and create a culture of creativity.
  • Leap into action and overcome the inertia of uncertainty and view failures as learning opportunities.
  • Team up and collaborate and discover how working collectively with others can yield greater impact.
  • Get out of your comfort zone, be curious, and start innovating.

The day will culminate with the first ever Fresh Innovators Awards, where we will recognize six change-makers who are digging into Waterloo Region’s challenges, creating solutions, and turning ideas into action. Check out our Nomination Info page here for more details!
