Summer is upon us, and we're holding a special IOToronto at MakeWorks!
"Digital, meet Physical."
MakeWorks is Toronto's first shared lab for connected devices startups. Everything at MakeWorks is designed around a core principle of "community + innovation = growth," and so we provide the tools, mentorship and community for our startups to thrive.
