Earlier this year, the city of Mississauga and its Economic Development Office proudly introduced their brand new IDEA Mississauga website aimed at boosting the city’s status as a global leader in innovation.

The assets and tools featured on the site serve to greatly accelerate the scale-up journey of businesses within Mississauga, helping both regional businesses and the city as a whole as it further establishes itself as a global pillar in innovation.
Thanks to the technical know-how of those at Globalgraphics, the hub is easily navigated and includes features such as:
