OCRI welcomes two new startups to Business Accelerator

Last week the Ottawa Centre for Research and Innovation (OCRI) welcomed two new startups into its Business Accelerator program. Just months after the successful graduation of IPeak Networks from the program and into market, Cognilore Information Solutions and Base 10 Web Solutions have moved into the OCRI premises.

OCRI’s Business Accelerator is a merit-based program that matches Ottawa’s most promising companies to an industry mentor and provides them with access to all of OCRI’s services for up to one year. Since completing the program in mid-2008, the first graduate, IPeak Networks, has expanded from two to nine full time staff and recently hired a VP of Sales, added an additional developer, launched a new VoIP trial, and secured two strategic partners.

Base 10 offers Internet marketing services to sellers of real estate, primarily via its flagship product UniqueHomeSites.com which can be described as a single property website service, a set of web-based tools allowing sellers of real estate to quickly and easily create a website dedicated to an individual property listing.

CogniLore delivers publishing management tools and services that make the online delivery of commercial content secure and easy. CogniLore systems allows major publishers, corporations, and government clients to publish innovative new legal, business, and information titles online – delivering subscriptions to thousands of organizations across North America.
