Scale-up Platform Project

The Queen's Partnerships and Innovation (QPI) team supports the University’s strategic goal to build community partnerships and fully embed Queen’s in the community. QPI contributes to the building of deliberate, strategic, respectful, and mutually beneficial engagement with communities outside the University, including Kingston, the region, other organizations and institutions, and national and global networks that share our goals.

With support from external funding, the QPI team offers numerous services, resources and programs to support entrepreneurs, including those from Queen’s, and to accelerate the growth of startups and small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) within Kingston and Eastern Ontario. Programs, services, and resources are available to companies in the region that are advancing science-based, technology-based and/or software-based solutions. 

Offerings include the incubation space for deep-tech companies, acceleration programs, intellectual property, and go-to-market services, workshops and events. The QPI team also facilitates the building of relationships and collaborative projects with Queen's researchers and research/technical centres.
