Our Story

In 2018, Building 13 of the Northam Industrial Park in Cobourg was converted into Venture13, Northumberland County's innovation and entrepreneurship centre.

The Town of Cobourg and the V13 Board of Partners (NCFDC, Cobourg Police Service, the NMA, and Northumberland Makers) have designed the space to connect and empower industry, investors, makers, the research community, and other key partners locally and across the regional ecosystem. 

We provide a pathway for the commercialization of innovation for economic development and diversification. We are ready for the challenges and opportunities of the technological age.
