Visiting The Forge

In Summer 2019, The Forge moved into a new 10,000-square-foot space in a former McMaster Innovation Park garage built to expand space for entrepreneurs – and the many volunteer mentors who guide them. The office is co-located with Innovation Factory, a not-for-profit Regional Innovation Centre, and The Centre for Integrated Transportation and Mobility (CITM), a division of Innovation Factory. There is always an abundance of visitors, mentors, and client guests visiting our space resulting in lots of opportunity for accidental useful collisions.

The Forge is open Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm (excluding holidays).

Stop by and visit us in Suite B21 in McMaster Innovation Park, located at 175 Longwood Rd. S.
