After getting his start in research at Trent University, founder of Noblegen, Adam Noble, has been awarded this year’s Startup Canada’s Young Entrepreneur Award.
The Young Entrepreneur Award is presented annually to a Canadian researcher under the age of 25 who has made an impact on Canadian entrepreneurship and demonstrated exceptional leadership in their startup companies.
Mr. Noble began his research career at Trent University in 2012. In 2013, Noble Tech Inc. (now Noblegen) was sponsored by Trent University to be the first company in the Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster in the DNA Building on Trent’s Symons Campus. Through this partnership, Mr. Noble’s research has outfitted Trent labs with over $1 million worth of equipment, offering Trent students, faculty, and researchers new opportunities for innovation and discovery.
“From the age of 17 this young man has dedicated himself to transforming his ideas into real-world activity,” says John Knight, director, research partnerships at Trent University. “Adam is an absolutely tremendous role model for young entrepreneurs. He is very deserving of the Startup Canada Young Entrepreneur Award.”
