The VeloCity Garage
Located in Suite 100 at 151 Charles St. W, Kitchener, Ontario.
The VeloCity Garage was launched in the Tannery Building in downtown Kitchener in 2010, with the aim of providing students and alumni with the connections, advice and equipment necessary to build their startups, even after they graduate. Since its creation, over 45 companies have benefited from the resources, community and connections given to them by the VeloCity Garage — and raised over $90 million in funding.
The VeloCity Garage is comprised of 7,000 square feet of free co-working space where tech startups can develop, test and implement their startup ideas. But more importantly, it’s a grassroots community that provides its members with mentoring from successful entrepreneurs, as well as opportunities to collaborate with peers and share knowledge and expertise. Members are encouraged to use the space to solve problems collaboratively, share ideas, contribute to the startup community by mentoring others, and launch their startups.
