Shenalie Fernando wants to be an astronaut. Shenali was our ventureLAB summer student recently. As a space engineering student at York University’s new Lassonde School of Engineering, she also spent three weeks at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. It’s one of the best global universities for engineering and technology. It’s also one of the world’s top 10 entrepreneurial ecosystems surrounded by start-ups, high-tech firms and new ideas to solve big problems.
In 2012 the Startup Genome released The Startup Ecosystem Report 2012; a comprehensive study focused on investigating startup ecosystems worldwide.

California has Silicon Valley. Ontario now has the Digital Corridor.
Silicon Valley is known for innovation and entrepreneurship, mostly focused on the technology sector. It is a triangle nestling in the Southern portion of San Francisco. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silicon_Valley
Here in Ontario there exists one of the most concentrated centres of technology leadership and growth in the world, and it has not received its due – until now.
Does anyone remember this day? When it happened for you? Did you even bother to attend?
For me, I remember my robe and I remember most importantly how proud my Mom and Dad were of me for reaching this achievement, it mattered.
This past Monday June 9th I was given the distinct honour of being asked to deliver the Convocation address to the graduating class of Centennial College. This time the robe was themed in the Centennial green and I was their guest. As I looked out over a packed house of students, parents, invited guests, faculty and staff, again I was reminded of the importance this achievement represents and how necessary it was going to be for me to not screw up!!
