RADIUS at SFU supports impact entrepreneurship and builds high impact ventures, through RADIUS Ventures, RADIUS Edu, and RADIUS Lab.

RADIUS Ventures builds high impact ventures. They find and amplify top emerging social ventures. In addition to exploring new ways entrepreneurs and ventures can help solve pressing social problems, we run the trampoline accelerator for impact focused entrepreneurs and ventures looking for support to test and refine their business model, to better position themselves for success, and the slingshot accelerator for high-impact, growth stage companies.

RADIUS Edu supports impact entrepreneurship and innovation courses and curriculum at SFU, designing and delivering new learning experiences for students and the broader community, and supporting research and new ideas for fostering a powerful community of emerging changemakers.

RADIUS Lab works on systems, collaborating with community to understand tough problems and generate impactful interventions. Currently, our work focuses on inner city economic innovations, in partnership with Ecotrust Canada.
