As students return to University, another promising group of entrepreneurs join the Hub Incubator Program offered through the John F. Wood Centre.

From making fashionable golf towels to advancing 3D printing in modern veterinary medicine, these students/alumni are passionate about improving the lives of others. 

With that goal in mind, the Hub Incubator Program provides students and/or alumni with funding, mentorship and advisory services to help them bring their ideas to life. 

It’s no small feat to start a business, but it all starts with just an idea.  These students and alumni show determination, innovation and perseverance.  Stay tuned on our blog and social media for updates about these businesses and their journey through the Hub Incubator program!

We are proud to introduce our F19 Hub Incubator Cohort.
