Entrepreneurship Fund

The BVZ Entrepreneurship Fund is a community supported fund that provides financial support to founders who are building their business at the Brampton Venture Zone by TMU. Through the generosity of industry partners and donors from Brampton and across the GTA, the BVZ Entrepreneurship Fund has a target to raise $1 million (non-dilutive, non-repayable) to support exceptional entrepreneurs dedicated to growing their business and personal development.

Entrepreneurs will be eligible for awards at two stages of engagement: the Inspire stage and the Launch (incubator) stage, as described below.

BVZ Inspire Grant:

Entrepreneurs joining the BVZ Inspire Program will have the opportunity to apply for 1 of 10 Inspire Grants. A total of up to $5,000 is available. Participants will apply for the grant during the program, and they will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

BVZ Launch (Incubator) Fellowships:

Founders who are accepted into Launch (our incubator program) will receive one of many fellowships (total value of up to $240,000) with no strings attached - no equity or intellectual property taken in return.
