Empowering to do more

Supporting the entrepreneurial and technology innovation community.

Our structured accelerator programs are complimented with community support services, resources and relationship building opportunities to help companies succeed and entrepreneurs develop personally and professionally. VentureLabs partners with other university, government, and industry partners to support innovation, entrepreneurship and business acceleration.

Networking and Community Building

VentureLabs regularly hosts community events, and can provide entrepreneurs with critical connections, a supportive network, and collaboration opportunities to grow their business. Connections include access to potential talent and expertise, clients, investors, partners, mentors, and government contacts.

Education and Training Workshops

Partnering with industry-leading companies and experts, we offer workshops, seminars, and other educational opportunities to expand knowledge, skills, and development.

Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub (WEKH)

SFU VentureLabs is the BC Regional Hub for WEKH, coordinating regional activities and collaborating with the strong and vibrant women entrepreneurship ecosystem.

The national program is designed to understand and address the needs of diverse women entrepreneurs. WEKH is led by Ryerson University’s Diversity Institute and Ryerson’s Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship and the Ted Rogers School of Management and focused on co-creating knowledge to advance effective practices to support women entrepreneurs.
