What We Do

Innovation & Entrepreneurship (I&E) at Yukon College provides entrepreneurs with access to a wide range of supports critical to bringing their ideas to life, such as funding for developing and testing prototypes, intellectual property protection and product scaling and commercialization. We empower innovators and entrepreneurs to realize their full potential by enabling the most advantageous resources, expertise, space and funding. 

I&E also provides invaluable connections for business-specific services including legal and accounting services, business coaching, and professional services and expertise suited to specific projects. I&E links innovators to coaches and mentors, and to a network of businesses and entrepreneur-focused groups locally, regionally and nationally. 


Who We Are

Meet our team at I&E. Our project innovation officer help ensure that all applicants are supported at every stage of the entrepreneurial journey, from conceptualizing their idea and formulating the application to actually going to market. 

Attend one of the information sessions later this month, hosted by I&E, located downtown Whitehorse inside the NorthLight Innovation Hub at 2180 2nd Avenue or email to book an appointment. We look forward to meeting you and connecting on your idea!
