Am I eligible?
Entrepreneurship@UBC programs and resources are available to UBC-related startups. “UBC-related” means at least one of the founders of the startup must be a UBC student, faculty, staff, or recent alumna/alumnus (up to 5 years from graduation). If in doubt about your eligibility, get in touch!
Where is entrepreneurship@UBC?
entrepreneurship@UBC is located at the heart of the main UBC campus, in the Graham Lee Innovation Centre on the lower level of the Robert H Lee Alumni Centre. Just follow the stairs downstairs!
How much does it cost?
entrepreneurship@UBC is funded by UBC, government agencies, generous donors, and sponsors. We provide entrepreneurship@UBC programs and services to UBC ventures at no cost (for info about the entrepreneurship@UBC Seed Fund see below). While there is no dollar cost to you, we have high expectations for the ventures we work with. Building a venture is highly rewarding, and it is also very hard work. We manage our investment of time into ventures in terms of their depth of commitment, the ability to work effectively with EIRs and mentors, the desire to contribute to UBC entrepreneurial community building, and of course the potential of the venture itself.
