The Central Alberta Regional Innovation Network (CARIN) runs an 8-week entrepreneurial incubator program to spearhead new business in the industrial, agriculture, and technology sectors.
The Catalyst Incubator includes mentors and presenters who bring their unique expertise to the table, offering insights and strategies to entrepreneurs considering new developments and businesses in those key areas.
