Why Work With BHive

We Can Support

As more start-ups and SMEs are looking to expand their business in Canada every year, entrepreneurs aren’t receiving the support they require to scale and establish themselves in the Canadian marketplace.

We Know Success

As the City of Brampton’s premier start-up incubator, BHive works strategically with international start-up founders and entrepreneurs to ensure they have everything they need to grow, scale and find success.

We Give You Access

Through BHive, you and your business will receive immigration support, educational sessions and training, access to highly-qualified mentorship programming and investor funding, and assistance in the Government of Canada’s Start-Up Visa Program.

Start-Up Visa Program

In working with BHive throughout the Flagship Start-Up Visa incubator program, international entrepreneurs and founders will be provided access to utilize the province’s top resources, investment opportunities and local workspaces to expand their start-ups and join Canada’s growing business landscape.

Our programming includes the opportunity to be onboarded and mentored by your sector’s top insitutions. While attending networking and alumni events, we will get you in the room with the right people to help you make your global scale-up a success.

As a partner of the Toronto Business Development Centre (TBDC), a Designated Start-up Visa Program Organization, BHive can provide a letter of support for your company’s application, a prerequisite of the Canadian government’s program.

At the end of the visa program, applicants will receive Permanent Residence status in Canada and the tools they need to launch their start-up.
