The Ontario government is investing $1.2 million over three years to help young Black entrepreneurs and Black-owned tech start-ups access the resources and tools they need to succeed in the province's changing economy. The funding will be provided through Ryerson University DMZ's Black Innovation Programs, which support Black-led businesses by connecting them with customers, capital, experts and a community of entrepreneurs and influencers

The Black Innovation Programs, now in their second year, support Black entrepreneurs and Black-owned tech start-ups by providing them with resources to achieve success, including skills development workshops, sales and marketing training, mentorships, and dedicated workspaces. The program also leverages industry partnerships to help businesses access advice from industry experts on how to attract investors, expand revenue growth and market their product to wider audiences.
