Harvard Media Owen Sound Origin Story
Bridging Tradition and Innovation: Harvard Media's Journey in Owen Sound
In August 2022, we opened a location in Grey County, in the city of Owen Sound. With over three decades of media industry experience, Harvard Media saw an opportunity to help local businesses in an area that was underserved in digital media. As word of our new location got out, local businesses in the area were excited, no longer being left behind in a strange new world. Thanks to Harvard Media these businesses now have the tools and knowledge to thrive in the changing digital marketing and advertising landscape. The Owen Sound office hasn't just opened doors for Harvard Media; it's opened opportunities for an entire community.
