Communitech helps tech-driven companies start, grow and succeed. Communitech was founded in 1997 by a group of entrepreneurs committed to making Waterloo Region a global innovation leader. At the time it was crazy talk, but somehow this community managed to pull it off. Today, Communitech is a public-private innovation hub that supports a community of more than 1400 companies — from startups to scale-ups to large global players.

Communitech helps tech companies start, grow and succeed in three distinct ways:

– Communitech is a place – the center of gravity for entrepreneurs and innovators. A clubhouse for building cool shit and great companies.

– Communitech delivers programs – helping companies at all stages with access to capital, customers and talent. We are here to help them grow and innovate.

– Communitech partners in building a world-leading ecosystem – making sure we have all the ingredients (and the brand) to go from a small startup to a global giant.
