Our community

The University of Toronto Entrepreneurship Community consists of 10+ Accelerators across our three campuses. Our entrepreneurial initiatives leverage the numerous strengths of a globally recognized university to provide an incredible range of unique offerings to current or aspiring innovators.

Focused on a diverse set of outcomes, we strive to ensure that anyone with the passion to build and explore has doors to enter and a community to support them.

We believe in entrepreneurship as a catalyst to accelerate:

  • Entrepreneurial education to develop world-leading talent
  • The adoption of new technologies
  • Discussion around innovative ideas
  • The participation of under-represented and racialized groups in our ecosystem
  • The creation and growth of new companies for economic and social benefit

Our community of accelerators supports student entrepreneurs, alumni-led startups, and researchers to turn their passion, ideas and innovations into successful ventures.
