Value Creation Stream

“Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.”



For business ideas at their nascent pre-revenue stage, we provide business incubation, market research and business planning, mentoring, expert advice on setting up the company and commercializing the product proposition, marketing and distribution. We also help you connect with angel investors for seed funding.

We take a hands-on approach to help you build your business. The focus remains on creating synergies and learning for those who’ve been there and done that. We connect you with subject-matter experts to help you wrap your head around anything ranging from legal requirements for launching your business idea to promoting your mobile app to early adopters.

  • Co-working space (coming soon)
  • Office services, tools and resources
  • One-on-one mentorship with successful entrepreneurs
  • Consultation with experts from a broad range of areas
  • Opportunities to pitch your business to investors
  • And yes, unlimited supply of inspiration


  • You are/were a legal immigrant or refugee in Canada, whether permanent resident or citizen now.
  • You have spent at least 12 months as a resident in Canada.
  • You have an idea for your first business in Canada or your first business is less than 6 month old.
  • You can stay up for hours working on your business idea (the coffee’s on us).

1 + 1 make three

Building a sustainable business enterprise takes the ingenuity of a craftsman and the vision of an artist. We understand it is hard for those traits to come together in one individual.

We rely on the unique talents of each individual to add value to the V-create process. But we do more than just that; we add one and one to make three (or more).

That is the beauty of a collaborative approach to innovation.
