The Digital Media and Gaming Incubator helps digital companies grow and succeed.

George Brown College’s Digital Media and Gaming Incubator provides the space, resources and mentoring opportunities to take your Startup to the next level.

The George Brown College Digital Media and Gaming Incubator supports the city’s digital sectors by providing affordable space, business and professional services along with a network of resources. Located in the School of Design at George Brown College in downtown Toronto, the Incubator is more than a physical location, it allows for focused and quiet work, formal and informal exchanges while also providing space that encourages exploration and unexpected discoveries.


Applications for Spring 2017 are currently being accepted.

The Incubator organizes an annual Pitch Competition for entrepreneurs called IT’S A START which is featured at Digifest, a three-day conference and showcase on technology and digital creativity. Final pitch competition will be held on April 28! This year’s theme is on Work-Learn-Play and the conference will be held April 27-29 at Corus Quay.

Co-working space and incubation for students and alumni of the college, co-location for external startups as well as for winners of the IT’S A START Pitch Competition.

Access to technology (i.e. 3D printing, motion capture studio) and highly-skilled student resources to support the startups.
