Innovation Place Tenants Receive MIST Funding for Innovative Tech Solutions

Congratulations to the following Innovation Place tenants and Co.Labs companies in Saskatoon who received funding in the inaugural round of Made in Saskatchewan Technology Program (MIST) applicants.

MIST connects the provincial government with Saskatchewan technology-based companies whose products may improve government service delivery. Successful applicants, approved by Innovation Saskatchewan, receive up to $10,000 to have their technology piloted by a provincial ministry or government agency for up to six months.

  • Luxsonic Technologies' all-in-one virtual reality radiology suite SieVRt (pronounced see-vert) designed to increase collaboration among physicians and is being assessed by the Saskatchewan Health Authority as an opportunity to improve patient care.

  • SkillShark is working with the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure (MHI) and the Public Service Commission to determine the ability of its software to help streamline the government’s Management and Executive Talent Inventory process.

  • Rivercity Innovations’ asset tracking device BeeSecure is being used by MHI to help prevent thefts and recover stolen goods.
