Wavefront Innovation Society

Wavefront Innovation Society, a Vancouver, British Columbia-based startup accelerator focused on mobile and IoT (Internet of Things) innovation, filed for bankruptcy on May 14, listing $2.1MM in liabilities, including $958.5M to the National Research Council of Canada and its Centres of Excellence for Commercialization and Research. While the company once presented itself as a key player in facilitating the creation of technological "smart cities", declining sources of revenue have contributed to its financial downturn. Grant Thornton is the bankruptcy trustee.
