Michael Whitt talks with the Calgary Herald about helping fuel innovation through Bennett Jones' partnership with Innovate Calgary's Kinetica Ventures. Kinetica bridges the energy industry and technology innovators to accelerate world-class energy technologies. Bennett Jones partnered with Innovate Calgary in January 2015 as a founding associate member of Kinetica Ventures.
In the Herald story Michael says, “Alberta’s oil and gas sector has always been about advancing innovation. That’s why Kinetica was created and why supporting its industry driven focus is an excellent fit with our lawyers. We match our seasoned and connected lawyers with Kinetica backed innovators early in their evolution, guiding technology entrepreneurs in areas like intellectual property law and business structures. So far, in our two years with Kinetica, we have helped eight innovative research and development entities toward their commercialization goals."
