The Forge is a business incubator funded by McMaster University, serving novel and scalable startups in the Hamilton, Greater Toronto and Niagara Regions. Launched in 2015, we work hands-on with entrepreneurs to develop their business ideas or startups from ideation and validation to growth. The Forge is sector agnostic, offering cohort-based programming and does not take equity in the startups we support.
In line with University and Government's policies and recommendations amid the COVID-19 pandemic, The Forge office at McMaster Innovation Park is closed until further notice. We look forward to continuing to work with you remotely.
Our programming will continue and is being hosted virtually to ensure the safety of our community.
If you require assistance, please reach out to a member of staff by email or phone during regular operating hours.
