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 UBC Point Grey campus, in the Graham Lee Innovation Centre on the lower level of the Robert H Lee Alumni Centre. One more spot on campus where you can find us is in the ICICS Building, where the HATCH Accelerator is located. We also have a presence at UBC Robson Square, in the Innovation UBC space.

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.

How do I get started?

Have an idea for a venture? We'd love to help you get started. If you're looking to learn more about our programming, what we offer and how you can start validating your idea connect with us to set up a time for us to chat. We’ll sit down with you, learn about your venture, and figure out the best way to help you. If you're simply interested in attending events, workshops or hearing about venture news the best way to stay connected is by subscribing to our newsletter.

I'm trying to fund my start up, how do I get money?

Subsribe to our newsletter, attend one of our lunch and learns, or apply for one of our incubator programs to learn about your options when it comes to financing your venture. Keep in mind, entrepreneurship@UBC doesn't write cheques. If you're looking for the UBC Seed Funds, you can find it here.
