Did you know that with over 500 new startup companies in the last 10 years, U of T is among the global top 10 university-managed incubators and #1 in Canada for research-based startups?
Our annual celebration of all things entrepreneurship at U of T – the U of T Entrepreneurship Week – is coming March 9-13, 2020.
Incubator and accelerator programs and other partners are hosting events throughout the week culminating in the True Blue Expo on Thursday, March 12 in MaRS with 60+ startups, the 2019 RBC Prize for Innovation and Entrepreneurship pitch competition, and the RBC Innovation and Entrepreneurship Speaker Series with Michele Romanow.
For those new to entrepreneurship, you will be able to learn more about the incubator/accelerator programs and to meet the next generation of entrepreneurs.
For entrepreneurs, you’ll have the chance to showcase your innovation, win prizes, and grow your network across U of T and beyond.
