Business Incubation

The Zen Launchpad Incubator Program is a hybrid incubator and accelerator that partners with founders to help them achieve long-term success. Our program begins with a three-month incubation stage which helps early-stage founders establish their company, find product market fit, and begin delivering to customers. 

Once the incubation stage is complete we transition to a nine-month acceleration stage and finally to a longer-term mentor and advisor role where we help to connect the founders to investors and industry partners to grow their venture.  We currently support four cohorts of up to twenty startups per cohort each year. We operate in a hybrid model with our primary physical location in Vancouver Canada but we have partnerships in cities around the globe so we can support startup teams internationally. If a company would be best served by a relocation we can support the Canada Startup Visa through our partnership with Spring Activator and the United States O1 Exceptional talent visa via our partnership with Guideli.
