Business ideas range from a reusable coffee cup program to composting in remote areas to giving art supplies a second life.

2019 INCUBATOR SUPPORTERS

In 2019, we partnered with theDock. In their Chinatown space, they gave our participants the opportunity to test out working in a co-working space catered towards social enterprises and purpose-driven businesses. Participants used the space to work on their businesses.

theDock is a co-working, meeting, and event space for community builders, social entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations, social purpose businesses, co-ops, creatives and engaged people making the world a better place. Their overarching vision is a connected and impactful social change sector in Victoria and on Vancouver Island, with theDock providing the space and services to its members to help them thrive, in community.
