Southcore's debut in Caricom

(TSX: NTI; OTCBB: NTLNF)

TORONTO, Oct. 15 /CNW/ - Northcore Technologies Inc. (TSX: NTI; OTCBB: NTLNF), a global provider of asset management technology solutions, announced today that its Working Capital Engine(TM) product suite was featured in a presentation by Southcore Technologies Ltd. during the recent "Developing Financing Solutions For the ICT Clusters in Trinidad and Tobago." This symposium was hosted by Evolving TecKnologies and Enterprise Development Company (eTecK), a state company with a mandate to diversify the energy-based economy of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago (www.eteck.co.tt).

The symposium was the first of its kind in Trinidad and Tobago, a landmark occasion bringing together the country's leading Information & Communication Technology (ICT) firms and locally-based education, research institutes and associations. Delivering the feature address, Minister of Trade and Industry Mariano Browne said his Government was committed to a public-private partnership which would help innovative ICT entrepreneurs with their growth.

ETeck has been mandated to develop a high tech and high knowledge intensive industry. In making this decision, the Ministry recognized that a more developed and competitive ICT sector, in addition to being a key service sector in its own right, is also critical to the promotion of sustained growth in other industries. The ICT sector now contributes an average of three per cent to Trinidad & Tobago's GDP each year.

"We appreciate the participation in our ICT symposium by Southcore Technologies and their partners The Pan Pacific Group International and Northcore Technologies. Exploring the benefits of Northcore's GE Asset Manager LLC joint venture, from the perspectives of both an investor and an entrepreneur, was a valuable contribution to our session. The formation of ICT sector joint ventures is a model for growth that is of clear interest to us," said Angela Hordatt, Vice President, Business Development at eTecK
