Burlington, ON, January 17, 2018 – In late 2017, TechPlace accepted two new companies, Kinjunxion and Unifai Solutions, into their LaunchPad program.

Kinjunxion is gearing for growth having recently launched their platform and will be utilizing the resources of TechPlace to grow as a company. “We are really excited about the opportunity a TechPlace LaunchPad offers”, Founder and CEO Alejandro Cuellar said, “being located amongst entrepreneurial organizations like Haltech and Angel One give Kinjunxion tremendous opportunities to fulfill our objectives through leveraging their mentors, programming and organic collaboration”.
