As part of the final stop of its cross-Canada #EveryEntrepreneur tour, Startup Canada today announced new additions to its slew of recent partnerships with co-working spaces.
The non-profit has signed agreements with eight Ontario co-working spaces: CoMotion on King (Hamilton), Co-work Niagara Co-operative Inc. (St. Catharines), Impact HUB Ottawa (Ottawa), LabB (Brampton), LabTO (Toronto), The Creative Space (Barrie), Offices That Work! (Peterborough), and UnLondon Digital Media Association(London). Through the Startup Canada Startup Space Fund, each co-working space will be available to entrepreneurs with a Startup Canada Passport.
“The partnerships established through the Startup Canada Startup Space Fund will give entrepreneurs living in and travelling to Ontario easy access to innovative places to work,” said Victoria Lennox, CEO of Startup Canada. “It’s another step forward in connecting entrepreneurs to local support and showcasing what the province has to offer.”
The announcement comes after a call-for-proposals issued by Startup Canada in early September to partner with grassroots, entrepreneur-led co-working spaces, incubators, and makerspaces across Canada, to create or provide physical spaces for Startup Canada Members to start and grow their businesses. Since that time, Startup Canada has signed partnerships across Canada, from the Yukon to Atlantic Canada.
