Startup Peel is a grassroots driven movement in Peel, Ontario bringing together people passionate about collaboration, innovation and learning. Our mission is to get people together to support one another (in both success and failures) as we create fantastic new companies in Peel. We are made up of entrepreneurs, technologists, designers and intrapreneurs who work for other organizations. Organizations, mentors and SMEs are also a big part of the support of this community.
As a key Startup Canada Community in Southern Ontario, we help Startup Canada as the gateway to Canada’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. We connect entrepreneurs with the support, community, and tools they need to build a successful business in Canada. Since Startup Canada’s inception in 2012, Startup Canada has grown to support more than 122,000 entrepreneurs annually and an ever-growing grassroots community network from coast to coast to coast. Through the flagship and digital programs, they provide guidance, eliminate barriers, and champion the needs of each and every entrepreneur to private and public sector partners. Startup Peel supports entrepreneurs in starting up and scaling up to ultimately make Canada the best place to start and build a business. We have a strong focus on programming for underrepresented communities including upskilling and reskilling programs through collaboration with our community partners. Startup Peel has successfully integrated several flagship and digital programs to our roster.
