Incubator and Maker Space
Incubator spaces and the maker space are a key part of Innovation York Entrepreneurship’s service offerings. Currently we provide student, faculty, and community entrepreneurs with access to two spaces within the York Region.
Created and managed by Innovation York, YSpace is York University’s newest community innovation hub located at the heart of Downtown Markham. We help build great companies by connecting them with high-end equipment, access to capital and a network of influencers and entrepreneurs. We are creating a vibrant physical hub that encourages creativity and bridges the gap between large enterprises and startups within the York Region ecosystem through incubator space, entrepreneurship programming, and a maker space.
