Social Ventures Zone COVID-19 Response

SVZ space is closed until further notice, all operations and communications will continue online
March 17, 2020

In light of increased preventive measures around the country to control the COVID-19 outbreak, the Social Ventures Zone is closing its space until further notice and moving our operations online. 

Ryerson University continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and receives up-to-date information from Toronto Public Health and the Ontario Ministry of Health about disease outbreaks and any potential cases on campus.

Caffeinated Innovators

As expected, we've sadly had to suspend all in-person Caffeinated Innovators until further notice. However, we still need our weekly dose of impactful conversations with our community, so we will be hosting "Virtually Caffeinated Innovators" every Friday at 9:15am!
