Innovation has been a driving force at the University of Waterloo and has been an integral part of the university’s success in research, entrepreneurship and experiential learning. The University of Waterloo was recently named as Canada’s most innovative university by Maclean’s magazine – recognition awarded to UW for the 27th year running.

Waterloo’s unique innovation ecosystem is distinguished by its inventor-owned IP policy, entrepreneurship programs, business incubators and robust industry partnerships.  From research to product idea to creation to commercialization, the University of Waterloo ecosystem provides the knowledge, tools, space and network to support start-ups and entrepreneurs on their road to commercial success.
