COURTENAY – The SquareOne Incubator, a new service in Nanaimo will help technology startup companies get the support they need to succeed, thanks to a $50,000 contribution towards programming costs from the Island Coastal Economic Trust.

SquareOne provides physical space for new companies, but more importantly, it also provides opportunities to learn from mentors, receive expert advice, and to make valuable connections in multiple sectors.

Launched by the Innovation Island Technology Association in partnership with the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation (NEDC), SquareOne will assist startups in navigating the unique challenges in the tech industry, including avoiding the mistakes that cause 60 per cent of startups to fail in their first five years.
