Ryerson zones are incubators, or spaces where aspiring entrepreneurs come together to brainstorm, kickstart projects and build startups. Each zone provides members with one-on-one mentorship from experts, as well as access to workshops, programs, bootcamps, and state-of-the-art workspaces and technologies.
Zones empower members to develop their own ideas or put their skills to work by collaborating with a team. As such, they help members grow their network, gain real-world experience, build their resume, and even access funding.
The Ryerson Zone Learning network boasts 10 zones on campus, each with a focus on a different industry, and several satellite zones and innovation hubs across Ontario and the world.
RVZ accepts applications at two stages of engagement: our industry challenge and our incubator program. Visit our programming page for key application deadlines and ways to apply for our programming.
