U of T Entrepreneurship supports entrepreneurial activity across the U of T entrepreneurship ecosystem, including managing funds provided by the Provost to support U of T startups. Included in the Provost Funding is the Buy Blue initiative that enables U of T academic and service entities to be the first buyer of products or services from new U of T startups at a discounted price, in order to support our startups’ commercialization process and to showcase the products and services our entrepreneurs are creating to our community.


By matching university-grown start-ups with university-based faculties, departments and staff, Buy Blue creates value to the university community as a whole, and showcases not only our new products and services but also the entrepreneurial ecosystem that nurtured them.
