Supporting Canadian founders, past, present and future.

Velocity supports founders during the riskiest and earliest time of business building. 14 years of experience helped us hone on the most effective ingredients for success: supplying teams with connections, practical and authentic business expertise, product development know-how, space to build a team and develop products cost-effectively, and risk-tolerant capital. 

Our Incubator can host 40-60 early-stage (seed and pre-seed) startups while our campus operations help support and inspire 5,000+ entrepreneurial students per year.

Supporting Waterloo students building the future

Velocity offers a variety of programs to support University of Waterloo students and researchers interested in entrepreneurship.

Through our efforts on campus we nurture a strong pipeline of founders ready to integrate our Velocity incubator directly from Canada’s top university for founders (source: Pitchbook).

We are also building a future generation that can impact Canada’s Innovation Ecosystem beyond startup founders, from small and medium businesses owners to “intrapreneurs”.
