With $600 million worth of research undertaken annually and more than 70,000 students, faculty and staff, UBC is an incredible spawning ground of high potential innovation and new ventures.

UBC’s seed funds invest risk capital in new and innovative startups in which a core team member is a UBC student, faculty, researcher or alumni within three years of graduation. UBC Sauder’s Creative Destruction Lab (CDL) - West offers an unparalleled network of mentors, academic experts and students to help founders transform their enabling technologies into innovative companies.

Giving to UBC’s seed funds or CDL-West supports entrepreneurs in the crucial early stages of bringing their scientific breakthrough, intellectual property or revolutionary business model to market.
