Start-Up Yard is the incubation facility at COVE, helping early stage ocean technology companies commercialize their products and services and succeed in the global marketplace. It offers programs, incubation space and services, funding, shared equipment, expertise and mentoring.
Start-Up Yard is more than infrastructure and other resources. It is a community – an environment with a strong innovation culture that lets start-ups engage with like-minded entrepreneurs and organizations that can help them start and grow. It also partners with post-secondary institutions to help drive commercialization of ocean technologies.
Start-Up Yard includes open concept desk space, meeting space and shared workshop and testing facilities. Open to all COVE members, it offers prototype design and fabrication equipment and services.
You can contact the Start-Up Yard team at any point, whether you’re at the idea, proof-of-concept, prototype, or go-to-market stage. We are happy to discuss your ideas, progress and future direction and how we can help.
Membership at COVE is exclusive of participation in the Start-Up Yard. Special leasing rates are available for those who qualify for the incubation program.
