New Leadership at Velocity

Adrien Côté steps into a new role, championing the vision for Canada’s most productive startup incubator

In the world of startups, the University of Waterloo’s incubator Velocity is a giant. Velocity has helped launch over 300 companies with a remarkably vast array of business models and technologies that have received more than $1 billion in investment. It supported the creation of some of 2019’s fastest-growing startups and most recently launched Concept, an experiential entrepreneurship and pre-incubator program to further encourage students to learn about scaling their ideas into a business.

The person who leads Velocity has a huge impact not only on the incubator’s future, but the future of technology and business in Waterloo Region, Ontario, and the country. Adrien Côté is the newly appointed Executive Director of Velocity.
