Support for Women in Entrepreneurship

Our centre provides programming for self-identifying women who are interested in working or starting a business in Kingston. We help foster a supportive community for individuals to explore entrepreneurship and innovation.


The Hive

Getting involved in new things and spreading your wings is hard. How do you know where to start? How do you know if it is right for you? What if it doesn’t work out? 

If these questions sound familiar, you’re in the right place! Join The Hive to see what all the buzz is about. This supportive community provides you with a chance to connect, learn and ask questions (even the “embarrassing” ones) in a judgement free zone.

The Hive is a program for all self-identified women who are looking for a supportive community to explore entrepreneurship, innovation and social impact. We particularly welcome self-identified women from underrepresented groups in The Hive. We believe we have a greater impact on society when we tackle problems from diverse perspectives. Our program participants come from all walks of life and our differences allow us to grow together.
