Shahab Khan

I have completed a tremendous amount of work in the innovation and entrepreneurship arenas through CANARIE, Newbridge Networks, Bell Canada and at Innovapost as well as been a key driver of Bell Canada's Innovation Centre program which involved many partners (including Terry Matthews and his Wesley Clover group of companies). I have conducted workshops and speaking engagements as well as provided strategic and implementation expertise to venture capital organizations, consulting firms, federal departments, crown corporations, startups, and incubators.

I have fully leveraged social media to further my goal of helping to support and drive innovation efforts nationally through collaboration. This includes my LinkedIN group “Addressing Canada’s Innovation Gap” with over 1000 members in every province across Canada, @caninnovation & cdnnextcio Twitter listings, and my crowdsourced Canadian Innovation Ecosystem map (
