About Us

Inspiration | Ideation | Innovation

We are the home of Social Entrepreneurship and early-stage start-ups at UTM, offering resources, programs, workshops and mentorship for people who are changing the world. If you want to make a difference, ICUBE is here to help you make it.


We empower innovators, creators, and change-makers to explore their ideas and make them happen.


We envision a community where entrepreneurship is an opportunity open to all, and a creation space where diverse leaders can ideate, collaborate, and make an impact together.

Institute for Management and Innovation.
Experiential learning is central to IMI’s teaching philosophy and ICUBE, like all IMI programs, helps prepare the next generation of leaders to contribute to our communities, and solve problems through discovery, application and communication of knowledge

Equity and Diversity Statement

ICUBE’s dedication to promoting diversity in our teams includes a commitment to ensuring every cohort accurately reflects the UTM community, welcoming folks of all gender identities, sexual originations, races and ages, and actively creating space for marginalized change-makers and under-represented disciplines.

All creators, entrepreneurial thinkers, and leaders are encouraged to apply.

ICUBE Values

ICUBE employs a values-based approach to supporting and training entrepreneurs. We believe that innovation needs to happen in a responsible and sustainable way that acknowledges the effects of disruption and aims to make positive impact.

ICUBE will not work with entrepreneurs or support business ideas that may:

  • Exclude any group from employment or service due to race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, marital status, family status, or disability
  • Intentionally or unintentionally harm, demean, or disproportionately effect any group
  • Undermine academic integrity
  • Be illegal in nature
