WHY THE BRILLIANT INCUBATOR?

The Brilliant Incubator program is the launchpad for transforming your innovative ideas into real world solutions.

Participants gain access to a dynamic network of like-minded individuals, guidance, workshops, and pitch competitions with prizes, all aimed at sharpening entrepreneurial skills. Expert coaching provides the fine-tuning required to propel your idea forward.

Through the program, participants validate their ideas, develop business strategies, and access a wealth of practical knowledge and connections. Participants also enjoy access to the Brilliant Catalyst on-campus space and resources, funding opportunities, mentorship from industry experts, and exclusive invitations to events in the Durham Region and Greater Toronto Area.

WHAT WE OFFER

There are currently two streams of the Brilliant Incubator:
Founders can apply during the Fall or Winter semester to complete the Asynchronous programming at their own pace.
If preferred, founders can apply for the 5-Week Intensive Summer Incubator for a more guided approach.
