UBC was recently named Canada's most innovative universities by Reuters. It is a growing hub for innovation and entrepreneurship.

Some of the programs that have been a driving factor towards enabling this entrepreneurial spirit include:


A powerful combination of mentorship, education, venture creation and seed funding to support UBC students.


An on-campus startup incubator that provides high-tech entrepreneurs with creative spaces, a networking cafe, tools to build prototypes, and mentorship. To help early stage UBC ventures to get crackig, Hatch provides a small grant called the Concept Fund.
