We’re here to help entrepreneurs in our community succeed at every stage. Our Venture Bootcamp helps early-stage and prospective founders think innovatively, explore their business idea and build a roadmap to launch or grow a business. This 15-week program gives participants an introduction to the different elements of structuring a company: sales, marketing, fundraising, growth and more. Our Bootcamp includes access to leaders in Greater Sudbury’s innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem, peer-to-peer networking events, expert-led presentations, and dedicated one-on-one support from our Program Coordinator. Upon completing the program, participants will have acquired essential tools and skills to begin operating an innovative business or bring a new scalable focus to their existing business model.
Interested in our Incubation Program but not quite ready to enroll? Our Bootcamp can help to accelerate your readiness to apply for membership in our Incubation Program, which takes a customized approach to support the next generation of successful tech-enabled startups over a comprehensive 12-month program. Venture Bootcamp participants will also receive a voucher for one free IQ Hot Desk rental for each Bootcamp session attended which can be used during the duration of the program (reservations subject to availability).
There is no eligibility criteria to join the Bootcamp; this is an introductory program that connects entrepreneurs with professional service providers and experienced founders to discover new tools and learn skills that will support the success of new and existing businesses. You can choose to register for the entire Bootcamp or participate in whichever activities best fit your needs. We’re proud to connect you with business leaders and ecosystem members during seminars, workshops and events designed to empower you to start or expand a business with an innovative element.
