Our campus is located in downtown Toronto’s King West neighbourhood and combines 3 buildings to create a modular platform for creating unique experiences – including a standalone Innovation Centre on Niagara Street and large event space on King Street with street access and additional meeting rooms + lounges.

With included furniture, turn-key presentation materials/technology and amenities (including an espresso bar and recording studio on campus), hosting events here is easy and enjoyable – for you and your guests.

Choose From 2 Purpose-Built Venues

Our venues regularly are used to produce amazing workshops, training sessions, off-sites, large round-tables, AGMs, internal presentations, product releases, micro-conferences and more.

Come Together & Collaborate With Ease

Retail/Street Access
There’s something magical about stepping off the street and into an event – both of our venues feature dedicated entrances and the opportunity to brand the exterior of our buildings.

Fully Furnished
You don’t need to coordinate between multiple vendors when hosting at StartWell – our venues come with high tops, low tops, coat racks, coffee tables, rugs, sofas and armchairs plus optional folding chairs. Each venue has been already laid out for optimal use and our included furniture can usually be re-arranged very easily.

Presentations Made Simple
We are used to enabling innovators to work together; our venues are offered with full audio-visual equipment for compelling presentations to audiences in-room and dialling in through conferencing software. Plus, we offer whiteboards, flip-charts, post-it notes and markers included in every venue rental.

You’re in Great Company
