Innovacorp is lucky to work with many of Nova Scotia’s most promising start-ups. On this page you'll find all the companies in our investment portfolio and those that reside at our facilities. You can filter them by the type of support we’re providing them (e.g., investment and/or incubation), the facility where they’re based, and the sector they’re in.

We’re also always working with several dozen other start-ups through our acceleration initiatives. You can find out about many of those companies by checking out the main website pages for programs like Innovacorp Accelerate, GreenShoots, Start-Up Visa and the Early Stage Commercialization Program.
