Venture Start Membership

Are you currently working on an innovative idea and would like some help and access to space to help you further develop your idea? If your ventures are still too early (they are either at Discovery or Ideation stage) to be enrolled into EPICentre’s Incubator Program, one of the three Venture Start Memberships may be right for you.
