This fall, we were pleased to welcome a new cohort of 16 CORE ventures into our vibrant community of UBC entrepreneurs. CORE is for ventures driving innovation through disruptive technologies, ideas and trends, helping early-stage entrepreneurs focus on achieving product-market fit and preparing for investment and growth.
Ventures a part of CORE are a reflection of emerging industries we see today, and this cohort is no different: from advance tech like blockchain and business solutions to ventures answering health, climate and social crises, these ventures represent the future of our society.
Founders hail from across our UBC community including Sauder, the Faculty of Applied Science, the Faculty of Education and more, demonstrating the range of ventures being brought into the world through entrepreneurship and innovation.
