Collab Space is the dream of Ottawa serial entrepreneurs Emile Salem and Blair Kilrea, who believe it takes a community to raise a successful business. Their vision – to create a space where entrepreneurs and small business owners can come together and support each other to overcome business challenges they may face on the road to success.
