The Social Ventures Zone is currently operating online. All our programming and events are now taking place virtually. Learn more.

The Social Ventures Zone is the home of social innovators at Canada’s most entrepreneurial university.  We work with students, alumni, faculty and people from the broader community to build social ventures that create real impact. The Social Ventures Zone model is based on rigorous research and global best practices about how social ventures can be best supported.

At the Social Ventures Zone, we work with innovators to develop their ventures, supporting them with coaching, training, work space, and funding opportunities-- all delivered in a growing community that is passionate about making change happen.
