The Conestoga Entrepreneurship Collective was created with a mission to empower and inspire students, graduates and alumni to successfully participate in the innovation economy in Waterloo Region.

Pathways are at the heart of the Conestoga experience and so they are in the Collective as well. We provide multiple different pathways for engagement in the entrepreneurship ecosystem enabling us to serve a wide range of clients, differentiate ourselves and complement other organizations in the community. 

There are three main labs in the Collective: Venture Lab (early stage business incubator), Sales Lab (finishing school for high-tech B2B sales) and the Gig Lab (Canada's first business incubator for freelancers). 

We are proud to celebrate and advocate #entrepreneurshipforall.
