The new three-year $300,000 investment comes in advance of the semi-annual Ramp Up weekend, running Nov. 21 to 23 at the Asper Executive Centre, 177 Lombard Ave.

"I want to thank Minister Chief and the Province of Manitoba for this three-year commitment to help local business in Winnipeg's tech sector get off the ground and access resources that will help them grow and thrive on a national and international level," said Mayor Brian Bowman, City of Winnipeg.
