Our Programs

At Innovate Inclusion, we build meaningful relationships with individuals and partners in order to empower underrepresented tech talent and entrepreneurs. We developed the following programs for underrepresented entrepreneurs and tech talent in Canada. 

equipment Assist

Innovate Inclusion Programs

With support from Unilever Canada, Innovate Inclusion offers access to various equipment, including laptops, tablets, podcasting microphones, and cameras.

Innovate Inclusion is committed to supporting underrepresented communities by providing access to programs and services that support personal and professional growth. Equipment Assist and Conference Connect, a program that helps entrepreneurs attend critical conferences for their business growth, are two programs developed to provide equity for the Black community.


Innovate Inclusion Programs

This vital initiative is being delivered as part of Innovate Inclusion’s ongoing effort to create access to services for historically excluded community members.

In 2020 Innovate Inclusion launched the Black Entrepreneur Mental Health Initiative (BEMHI) in direct response to increased anxieties felt by founders due to the pandemic. This year BEHMI is expanding to offer services to essential workers across Ontario and Quebec. For more information visit www.BEMHI.ca

Conference Connect

Innovate Inclusion Programs

Too often, underrepresented communities miss out on opportunities to connect simply because they can’t afford the price of admission. Conference Connect is an exclusive program that provides access to individuals who have a lot to gain from being in attendance. Aside from providing a free ticket to address financial barriers, we have a larger goal in mind; to form a community committed to supporting each other.

How Conference Connection Works
