Who are we?

Atlantic Canada is unlike anywhere else in Canada—and the world for that matter. It’s what makes us different that will help us stand apart on the national and global stage. As we know, it takes a village to raise a start-up and our village is like no other. Startup Atlantic is a network that works together to make it easier for founders to succeed. We’re building a thriving innovation ecosystem for accelerators, incubators, government agencies, and investors to collaborate for better venture growth in Atlantic Canada. With us, whatever door a founder opens, we’ll connect them to what they need.

Our ecosystem is the place where smart people can get more out of work and life. In a world where proximity is optional, it’s Startup Atlantic's role to make sure we share our Atlantic edge through our brand. We are the voice that loudly and proudly showcases our ecosystem to the world. Our community of innovators and ecosystem builders are impactful, and we want it to be known by others and give it the attention it deserves.
