Toronto getting a Sports Innovation Hub

Toronto's Ryerson University is well known for the DMZ, one of Canada's largest incubators for businesses and tech startups. Now, the university's Ted Rogers School of Management (TRSM) is launching the Sports Innovation Hub (SPIN), for what else but sports-related ventures.

"This new hub will provide exciting opportunities for our students to engage with some of North America's leading sport industry experts to push the boundaries in sport innovation," said the TRSM's dean Steven Murphy in a news release.

Beyond simply acting as an incubator, SPIN will host a number of events including hackathons and demo days.

And, it joins Ryerson's zone-based learning approach. Along with the DMZ, the centrally located university has a variety of specialized zones, including the Fashion Zone, the Transmedia Zone and the SocialVentures Zone.
