Focus on your startup's growth, supported by a community of entrepreneurs-in-residence and other founders like you.

The Platform Incubator helps founders move their startup from experimentation to a process-driven business. Founders work closely with an Entrepreneur-in-Residence, a community of mentors and other startup founders to scale their business over 18 months. 

The Platform Incubator provides structure and processes to enable continuous, rapid learning and scalability. It's tailored and unique to each founder to allow them to focus their time and energy where it makes the biggest difference for their startup.

 

YOU’LL BE A GOOD FIT IF YOU:

  • Have a business dedicated to solving a compelling problem using innovative technology
  • Have early customer traction and revenue
  • Are building your company for growth beyond Alberta
  • Are focused on execution and accountability
  • Are looking for less programming, and more coaching and guidance
  • Would like real-time access to resources and support
  • Have a driven, coachable and collaborative team

YOU’LL FOCUS ON:

  • Building confidence to move from the founding team to the leadership team
  • Identifying what experiments are working and begin to scale
  • Strengthening your network and community of support to grow and scale in Alberta and beyond

 

TIME COMMITMENT 

On average, founders in the Incubator will engage in 2 to 4 hours of biweekly tailored activities over 18 months.
