Northleaf is pleased to share that we have partnered with Ryerson University's The DMZ to support their Black Innovation Programs (BIP), the first-in-Canada programs that will empower the next wave of Black entrepreneurs.
As a Champion Sponsor, Northleaf has made a five-year sponsorship commitment to support the BIP. This initiative aligns with Northleaf’s commitment to advance diversity, equity and inclusion within our firm and in the private markets industry more broadly.
The programs will provide startups led by Black entrepreneurs with the strengthening support of a top university-based incubator network, as well as additional programming, mentorship, events, and connections to industry, capital and an alumni network, to support their success and growth.
