Communitech helps founders start, grow and succeed

At Communitech, we’re all about the “F” word. Founders.

We were built by tech founders who saw the need for a community of support to help ensure the future prosperity of Canada. No other innovation hub can say that, which is pretty cool.

Established in 1997, our mission has been our guide ever since. We’re here to support the founder at every stage of their journey, providing accelerated opportunities to access talent, capital and sales.

As Canada’s tech supercharger, we help founders:

  • Hire and retain the smartest, brightest and most experienced people

  • Access growth financing at every stage

  • Sell to the biggest customers at home and around the world

  • Connect the right people at the right time – peers who have been there before, coaches who can guide them through the difficult spots and partners from all over Canada

We’re looking to grow our team with passionate people – people who believe in our mission and who are willing to do what it takes to help our founders succeed. If you like to work collaboratively, get s#!t done and be a champion for Canadian tech, we want to hear from you. Wonder what it’s like to work at Communitech? Learn more at
