Spaces to connect, build and grow.

Our spaces

Velocity offers nearly 40,000 sq.ft of offices, product development, and events spaces designed to support founders and entrepreneurially-curious people.

Thanks to our  connection with the University of Waterloo, we are one of the very few places in Canada with dedicated resources for technical founders.

For full-time founders

Velocity incubator

Velocity Downtown

The Tannery

Located at the heart of Kitchener’s Innovation District, the Velocity offers early-stage founders space to build a company AND build a product.

Most of our startups would require millions of dollars in investment to operate without our facilities. Velocity founders also join a supportive community of other startups at various stages of growth, allowing them to share knowledge and network with peers.

Innovation Arena

Coming soon: Innovation Arena

Located in the City of Kitchener’s innovation district, the Innovation Arena will amplify Canada’s health tech sector.

In partnership with the City of Kitchener, and with Velocity – Waterloo’s renowned startup incubator – at its core, the new collaboration space will streamline commercialization pathways for businesses, fast-track delivery of health technologies and drive Canada’s next wave of economic growth.
