Launching in 2019, the Black Innovation Fellowship (BIF) is a program built to support tech startups led by black entrepreneurs through a strategic partnership between Dream Maker Ventures and Ryerson University's DMZ.
 
The partnership will give more black founders access to the benefits of Ryerson DMZ's programs, such as:

  • Advice from industry-specific mentors and experts

  • Work and meeting space in the heart of downtown Toronto (with their fees waived)

  • Competitions and awards that can unlock new partnerships and funds 

  • Inclusion in marketing and publicity opportunities that showcase the work of DMZ startups 

This support will be provided in conjunction with mentor, corporate and investor networks, along with the assistance of a community of DMZ peers, experts and staff.
