Whether you’re just starting out as an entrepreneur or you’re a seasoned business owner, we have different levels of programming to support your needs.
E101 – Created for aspiring founders who want a masterclass in entrepreneurship, this award-winning five-week online course offers weekly mentorship from experts, access to a network of fellow entrepreneurs, and all the tools you need to launch your startup. Visit the MaRS E101 website to find out more information about the cohort and when the start dates are. This is a great resource for early-stage startups and allows you to access Toronto resources from the comfort of your own home, anywhere in the world!
Launch Pad – This 8-week program will give you the tools you need to grow as an early-stage startup. Each session will focus on a specific topic (marketing, financing, team development, business foundations, intellectual property, etc.) and will allow you to learn, ask questions, and work with other entrepreneurs in your cohort to build the foundation for your business.

Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) Support – Less structured than the Amplify or boot camp program, EIR support provides as-needed advice and guidance to companies who are looking to address specific challenges or needs. It could be dealing with co-founders, raising investment, succession planning, or something else entirely — Launch Lab EIRs are here to support your business needs.
Peer-to-Peer – these group sessions are facilitated and led by a Launch Lab Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) and help provide companies with an environment of like-minded entrepreneurs facing similar challenges or at similar stages. Thanks to our partnership with Valley Heartland CFDC, we have been able to run a successful food-product specialist peer-to-peer group in Smith’s Falls.
Amplify – Amplify is a program where EIRs nominate clients that we feel not only show signs of rapid growth potential, but in addition, have an ability to commit to a greater amount of work with Launch Lab and have team members that assume responsibility for implementing recommendations and strategic initiatives. This program accelerates and scales innovative Eastern Ontario companies selling into both business-to-business (B2B) or business-to-consumer (B2C) markets regional, nationally or internationally.
