University of Ottawa:
uOttawa’s Innovation Support Services (ISS) provides services to uOttawa’s research community to increase the impact of research through the creation of strategic innovation partnerships and the commercialization of technology. With CLA funding, and in partnership with the UOttawa Entrepreneurship Hub, ISS will foster experiential learning through the Startup Garage program.
Funding of the Startup Garage program stems in great part from the Capital Entrepreneurs initiative supported by the Campus-Linked Accelerator Program (CLA). The CLA is a $6.8 million dollar initiative of Ontario’s Ministry of Research and Innovation, and Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to help student entrepreneurs across Ontario gain business skills, mentorship and hands-on experience to start and grow a business.
Ontario Centres of Excellence:
Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) drives the development of Ontario’s economy by helping create new jobs, products, services, technologies and businesses. In partnership with industry, OCE co-invests to commercialize innovation originating in the province’s publicly funded colleges, universities and research hospitals. We also support and invest in early-stage projects, where the probability of commercial success and potential total return on innovation are substantial. Another expanding focus for OCE is the development of the next generation of innovators through our entrepreneurship fellowships and programs for students and youth across Ontario.
Invest Ottawa delivers economic development programs and initiatives that increase entrepreneurial momentum, wealth and jobs in the City of Ottawa and its surrounding region. Its goal is to make Ottawa the best place in Canada to start and grow a knowledge-based business.
