Don’t just take our word for it

Here’s what our founder members have said about us.

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.
