reBOOT Canada’s Founders Award & the 2022 Nobellum Innovathon

reBOOT Canada is excited to be a part of the 2022 Nobellum Innovathon Program, and this event marks the first ever reBOOT Canada’s Founder’s Award disbursement. The Innovathon Program invites young professionals to bring their ideas to life giving the registrant an opportunity to create and fund their own business venture, while also connecting and networking with other innovators in the tech community. The Annual Innovathon gives a talented innovator the opportunity to receive up to $20,000, and reBOOT Canada is proud to be a sponsor.

Founded in 2020, Nobellum is a non-profit social and technology enterprise dedicated to carving out a space in the technology industry for Black founders in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Nobellum is a community made up of Black and Indigenous People of Color who work together to build opportunities that welcome a new generation of Black-owned businesses in STEM. 

reBOOT Canada Executive Director Francisco Rota says, “The reBOOT Canada Founder’s Award emerged from discussions to mark the 27th anniversary of the charity and recognize the founder and chairman of the board of directors, Colin Webster, who has always supported innovation and entrepreneurial approaches to his businesses as well as his important charitable projects, like reBOOT Canada, geared to sustainable and scalable social impact. We felt using the award to contribute to the success of the Innovathon event and the Nobellum organization would be the optimal way to make a difference and amplify some voices that are too often overlooked. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with the Nobellum team and Wrightway Education and really excited to see and hear the ideas and business models generated by these talented young founders.”

Just as Nobellum is dedicated to carving out a space for Black Founders in STEM, here at reBOOT Canada we believe that everyone should have access to the technology they need to gain access to education, and community in a way that will set them up for success.
