The Centre for Ocean Ventures and Entrepreneurship (COVE) welcomes IBM Canada, who has joined the ocean business park as a tenant, one of 50 currently in residence.
IBM is one of Canada’s top 10 private R&D investors and last year contributed more than $478 million to Canadian research activities. In September 2018, it was revealed that IBM, along with COVE, Dalhousie University, the Ocean Frontier Institute, the Government of Canada, local industry and the Province of Nova Scotia, were collaborating on the rollout of DeepSense – a world class big ocean data innovation environment.
Bringing COVE from concept to reality has involved many partners, including the Institute for Ocean Research Enterprise (IORE), Develop Nova Scotia (previously Waterfront Development), Innovacorp, Nova Scotia Community College, Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia Business Inc., the Nova Scotia Department of Business, and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada.
