Startups

It’s free to become a Communitech startup and it comes with a complimentary Communitech membership.

… so, what’s the catch?

There isn’t one, aside from the hard work you’re used to. 

We’re here to guide you, but we won’t hold your hand. Engaging with the Start & Scale team has its perks, there’s no doubt. But it’s like joining a gym—you only see results if you take advantage of what’s offered.

Depending on your company stage, you have access to the people, programs, services and events to help you get where you want to go—much faster than doing it alone. 

Not yet a member, but ready to fix that?

"Communitech creates a level of comfort and security to operate within, and I think that's really important when you're starting a company and everything feels like it can change at any moment and every day is different."

Mallorie Brodie, Co-founder & CEO, Bridgit

Startup stages

Companies with a startup membership access resources based on product development and market demand. 

Early-stage startup

You’re firming up your idea. You’re working toward building your MVP, but your product isn’t quite developed.

Late-stage startup

You have a product that you’ve started to test. You either have revenue or proof of market demand.

Unlock additional resources and services. 

Early-stage startups graduate to late-stage by pitching business and success metrics at the Level Up Pitch Panel.
