The Forge
Business incubator serving innovative start-ups in the Hamilton Region

The Forge is a business incubator serving innovative start-ups in the Hamilton Region and McMaster University. Launched in 2015, we work hands-on with entrepreneurs to develop their innovative business ideas, from ideation and validation to growth. The Forge is sector agnostic, offering cohort-based programming to entrepreneurs pursuing scalable, tech-based companies. So far 143 companies have been through The Forge Business Incubator program; together they have raised over $31M and are selling products in 50 countries.

Clients receive expert mentorship, non-dilutive seed funding, investor introductions, office space, workshops, access to a well-equipped makerspace and numerous services to ensure success. We do not take equity in the start-ups we support.

In addition to the McMaster community, our programs are available to innovative entrepreneurs from the Greater Toronto, Hamilton, and Niagara regions.
