We are North Forge East, a member of the National Angel Capital Organization (NACO). Headquarters based in Pinawa, North Forge East is the first non-profit, innovation based, regional business incubator in Eastern Manitoba. We help entrepreneurs with strong business ideas develop in the area by offering access to mentors, subject matter experts and guidance as they progress through the start-up program. We also offer free digital prototyping services, 3D printing lab access and training. North Forge East is funded and supported by organizations such as the Local Government District of Pinawa, University of Manitoba, Red River College and the Canadian National Energy Alliance.
