entrepreneurship@UBCO programming is designed to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs, create sustainable communities and support new venture creation.

entrepreneurship@UBC (e@UBCO) in the Okanagan serves as a nexus point for the university’s research commercialization and entrepreneurship initiatives and is housed in the Office of the Vice-Principal, Research & Innovation. e@UBCO also has space in the Kelowna Innovation Centre in downtown Kelowna, which houses many innovation ecosystem partners, including ETSI-BC, Accelerate Okanagan, Purppl, NRC-IRAP, Spaces and the Okanagan College animation studio.

From the first spark of entrepreneurial thinking to creating innovative commercial and social impact ventures, e@UBCO offers an incubator and collision space that supports students and researchers in developing their ideas and bringing the resulting products or services to market.
