What is StartWell?

Simply put, StartWell is Toronto’s happiest place for meetings, events and offices.  Our main campus comprises a wealth of spaces designed to naturally enable introspection and focused work as well as collaborative creation, learning and social network development.

Our Mission

To support the evolution of our members’ working lives – towards greater personal and collective freedom and happiness.

Our Members

StartWell’s member based community includes people and companies who create – ideas, products, solutions, opportunities.  They work in many disciplines and include technology startups, creative agencies, consultants, artists, film producers and many more.

More Than Space

We take a holistic approach to actualizing our mission. Member companies at StartWell not only get access to physical space where they can meet, work and entertain but also grow and learn through our programmed event series, venture capital fund and ‘Momentum’ peer mentorship series.
