Think. Connect. Do.
The eHub incubator provides multiple avenues to invest in your idea. Our life-cycle approach offers robust learning materials and engagement, customized to every student.

Progress at your own pace.
Commit and invest as much as you’d like.
eHub Crash is a free Canvas Course that provides the basics on key five themes: Ideation, Market Research & Sizing, Business Model Validation, Minimum Viable Product, and Narrative & Network.
This course is self-led, allowing you to take as little or as much time throughout the process as you’d like. Throughout the course, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with advisors to both validate and continue ideation of your concept, catalyzing your time-to-scale.
eHub Mentor provides mentorship from upper-year, student-entrepreneurs. Connect and brainstorm with senior students who have been in your position before. They’ve already navigated UBC’s entrepreneurship ecosystem, scaled their ideas, failed a few times on the way – and have lessons to share with you.
You can book an appointment with an eHub Mentor at any time by visiting the link below. eHub Mentor sessions are also integrated within the eHub Crash course.
eHub is here to fund your first failure. eHub Seed provides $200 Seed Funding, as a one-time non-equity grant. Once you’ve completed the eHub Incubator (Phase 1 & 2), you’ll have the opportunity to apply for eHub Seed funding.
