Yukon University’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship (I&E) is launching a Yukon business incubator, thanks to a $400K contribution from TD Bank Group. Over the next four years, this early-stage business incubation program, IncubateNorth, will support entrepreneurs throughout the territory to grow their businesses locally, nationally, and internationally. 

The IncubateNorth team will work with each successful applicant to develop a 12 to 18-month program specific to the needs of the entrepreneur. The incubator will offer shared workspace, support and programming for applicants to gain the skills and knowledge needed to grow their business within and beyond the Yukon. IncubateNorth is Canada’s first regional incubator and will be available remotely for Yukon communities.  

Yukon University’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) is supporting social enterprise throughout the territory thanks to funding from the Government of Canada’s Sustainable Development Goals Funding program. 
 
I&E will use this funding to raise awareness about the benefits of social enterprise and support Yukon businesses to incorporate sustainable development goals (SDG’s) into their business practices. This support will address the needs of businesses new to sustainability practises, as well as further enhance Yukon businesses that have already adopted one or more sustainable development goals into their social enterprise.
