Who We Are

A friendly, supportive team dedicated to helping your business grow and succeed.

Launch Lab is a Regional Innovation Centre and member of the Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs, a provincially-funded network of resources for entrepreneurs. As a RIC, our regional boundaries consist of most of southeastern Ontario (Trenton, down to Picton, over to Cornwall, and back up and around through Smiths Falls and Bancroft).

Our head office is in Kingston at Innovation Park but our team of Entrepreneurs In Residence operate throughout the region. We work with tech-based businesses that have an innovative technology or idea, and a variety of new startups who are experiencing challenges and looking to grow.

Our purpose is to foster entrepreneurship and the commercialization of innovations to help build globally competitive companies in Eastern Ontario.
