A $125,000 contribution from Coast Capital Savings credit union is funding a new interdisciplinary hub at the Surrey campus called Venture Connection. The new business incubator will bring together experts from academia, research and industry to provide support and educational programs to student, faculty and community entrepreneurs interested in establishing new companies. It will also offer student business-plan competitions, workshops and seminars to help students develop start-up ventures with assistance from mentors and experts. Venture Connection aims to increase the number of SFU spin-off companies and accelerate the growth rate of early-stage businesses in the Fraser Valley.
