Here to build a better future

Simon Fraser University is stepping up to build a sustainable, resilient and inclusive economic recovery. Our faculty, students and staff are engaged with people and organizations in Canada and around the world to drive innovation, improve public health, fight climate change, promote democracy, and create exciting new economic opportunities. In these, and so many other ways, we’re here to help shape a better future for everyone.

We help Canada lead in global technology. Through Canada’s Digital Technology Supercluster, SFU researchers help Canada develop, deploy and scale digital technologies.

We support aspiring entrepreneurs. With start-up incubators like SFU’s Coast Capital Savings Venture Connection, we help entrepreneurs take their ideas to market.


We help students gain practical experience. The SFU Entrepreneurship Co-op awards students $10,000 to work on their start-up companies while receiving university credit.

We develop new technologies. Technology Entrepreneurship@SFU brings students together to develop and market new, solution-driven technological products.

We support more inclusive learning environments. Education professor Inna Stepaniuk explores ways to decolonize educational systems and design more equitable programs.
