✨ Ready for the biggest celebration of tech in Calgary? Innovation Week YYC is back November 15-23, 2023! ⚡️

Focus on your startup's growth, supported by a community of entrepreneurs-in-residence and other founders like you.

The Platform Incubator is an 18-month program tailored to your startup to help you focus your time and energy where it makes the biggest difference, by providing structure and processes to enable continuous, rapid learning and scalability.

Get 1:1 support from experienced Entrepreneurs-in-Residence and connect with a community of startup founders to scale your business. 

Entrepreneurs-in-Residence adopt a coaching philosophy in their mentorship role. Instead of prescribing specific business strategies, we focus on posing insightful questions that encourage founders to delve into their own thoughts and observations, considering the startup from different angles. This method empowers individuals to arrive at their own conclusions, tackling challenges autonomously, ensuring that the founder maintains full ownership of the strategic direction and decision-making process. The outcome is long-term competency and skill development in the entrepreneur.
