Startup Garage


The Startup Garage is an initiative of the Ottawa Technology Transfer Network(OTTN) to foster and support student entrepreneurship in the Ottawa area.

The program offers student-lead ventures the opportunity to accelerate their business by working full time over the course of three months during the summer. StartUp Garage provides each participant company with three essential ingredients:cash, space, mentorship and support.  It operates through the University of Ottawa’s office of Technology Transfer & Business Enterprise.

The program is delivered through the generous support of the Ontario Centres of Excellence and in partnership with Carleton University, Algonquin College and La Cité Collégiale through a unique experiential learning program: Ottawa Young Entrepreneurs.

For the summer of 2013, Startup Garage will be awarding a total of $60,000 in cash to be divided over successful applicant ventures.  As a result of the number of companies we are pleased to support, the location of the “Garage” remains to be confirmed.
