Gig Lab

Finally, a business incubator for freelancers

Does your new business idea centre around you personally delivering a professional service like graphic design, photography, app development, bookkeeping or software development? That is a freelance business. 

The Gig Lab empowers students and alumni to monetize their industry-level skills by launching a freelance business over the course of 15-weeks. It is the only business incubator in Canada specifically designed to address the nuances and specific needs of freelance entrepreneurs while developing the skills, mindset, and tools to succeed in the professional gig economy.  

Whether you have already started your freelance journey or are just starting out, this program will change the way you think about your business.
