Our Latest Success Stories

Good things happen when you connect students, faculty and the local community. Read about the success stories coming out of CBaSE.

  • Hub Cohort V Graduation
  • Cohort Five of The Hub Graduates!

    In August 2016, four startups emerged from the Hub Incubator far different from when they entered four months prior.

    From week to week, these teams met their challenges head on and used the strength of the group to help each other persevere through the difficult times. It was an absolute pleasure to watch each team grow and the progress they made between beginning the Hub and graduation was superb. We wish these startups all the best on the next steps in their journey and leave you with their comments on their time in the Hub:

  • Another Cohort of The Hub Graduates

    April 2016 saw another successful group of companies graduate from the Hub Incubator Program at CBaSE.

    Five teams; Vintage Instincts, The Making Box, Better Start Naturals, TRAVA and Protein Innovations presented their success, pivots and future goals to a group of Innovation Guelph Mentors (including Hub Manager Niel Palmer). These mentors along with Melanie Lang, Director of CBaSE, judge the final presentations and decide who will receive the final installment of their seed funding, and who will not.

  • The Hub
  • Members of The Hub Incubator Program See Great Success

    "There is no such thing as a "million dollar idea", ideas are worthless until you get them out of your head to see what they can do". We are not immune to the "yeah, but..." comments that come along with a big statement like that, we get it. The commonality between the successful entrepreneurs you're about to read about however, is that they pushed past the "yeah, but..." red flags in their head, and, they were all participants of The Hub Incubator Program.

  • University of Guelph Graduates Open Innovative Restaurant

    Just 4 months ago, Lirom Shimonov, Mirelle Shimonov and Corey Paris opened Who Gives a Schnitz in downtown Guelph. These University of Guelph graduates saw an opportunity in Guelph’s late-night food market and made it their mission to introduce an innovative new restaurant offering the best Schnitzel sandwich in town. I had the pleasure of visiting with them at their downtown location and trying one of their mouth-watering schnitzel sandwiches. If I didn’t give a schnitz before, I definitely give a schnitz now!
