Supporting your journey to scaling up

From first-time founders or multi-time founders with a big idea to pursue, we collaborate with scientific and technology focused entrepreneurs.

VentureLabs offers community support and structured accelerator programs designed to help companies optimize and accelerate their development and growth with actionable advice and hands-on mentorship. We provide the support services, resources and relationships to succeed with access to workspace and amenities, and exposure to potential investors. Companies can participate as a virtual member (may use working space occasionally on a drop-in basis) or full-time in-house member (requiring a dedicated work area and access to meeting space).

The accelerator program at SFU VentureLabs is an amazing resource for early-stage entrepreneurial companies.  I have been very pleased working with the Entrepreneur-in-Residence (EIR) team at VentureLabs, as they have helped us to refine our business plan to become more customer-focused and impactful. The working environment is supportive and friendly and we really appreciate the efforts of the entire VentureLabs community.
