Fleming College will be part of the Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster’s new VentureNorth incubator project.
The organization announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding with Fleming College. The deal will see Fleming occupy 1,000 square feet of dedicated space for use by business and technology students.

The incubator is located at 270 George St. N.
“At Fleming, we are always seeking new ways to enhance work-integrated learning. But we know the actual nature of work is changing – with innovation, entrepreneurism and synergies amongst technology and business being keys for the future success of our students and our communities. This space recognizes this change and allows our students to gain the skills needed for this cultural shift,” stated Maxine Mann, dean of the School of Business and the School of Trades and Technology.
