Bridge@Lebovic – VICC Launch
On Tuesday, April 19, 2016, the City of Vaughan’s VICC launched their Bridge@Lebovic program at the Joseph and Wolf Lebovic Jewish Community Centre located at 9600 Bathurst Street. The Bridge@Lebovic is an affordable co-working space designed to promote collaboration between cutting-edge businesses. The Bridge@Lebovic is part of the Vaughan International Commercialization Centre’s Soft Landing Program, one of a suite of progressive economic development initiatives led by the City of Vaughan. The VICC Soft Landing Program mitigates the risks associated with entering new markets by connecting established businesses to short-term rental opportunities, international organizations with in-market contacts, and localization services. In addition, Soft Landing members have access to technology testing opportunities and matchmaking services which include a directory of available soft-landing space including company profiles, site specifications, and contact information and access to in-market representation services. A variety of desk rental options are available including premium desks with large workspaces and lockable cabinets, and virtual offices with a dedicated mailing address and phone extension. Here are a few pictures of local businesses, various business owners and City staff who attended the launch.
