Toronto's reputation as a centre of excellence for new materials and nanotech has been quietly building in the last few years. Our favourite data point: our client Northern Nanotechnologies , currently featured in July's edition of the University of Toronto's Engineering magazine. As the article notes, since its spin out of University of Toronto in 2006, the company has quietly raised millions of dollars in funding to build its nanomaterials business. The business is led by Keith Thomas, who built a successful startup in the Healthcare IT space before joining Northern Nanotech.
