Incubating a great idea to a world-changing one starts at Waterloo.

Entrepreneurship thrives here

It’s been a part of Waterloo's story since our inception. Feeding off this drive, we’ve helped build — through industry collaboration — an entrepreneurial ecosystem born of the same spirit that’s grown to international influence.

Our entrepreneurial spirit has the ability to bring the world novel solutions but also perspectives, collaborations, models and processes. At Waterloo, students, faculty and staff have the support and resources to actualize their ideas. We have taken this standard to another level through a comprehensive ecosystem that goes well beyond the university campus.
