While walking up and down Queen Street in Downtown Toronto, David Fu noticed that there were a lot of empty storefronts. Even though he was in the heart of downtown Toronto, the businesses were not. His startup Tenatch is here to provide a solution.
Tenatch is a startup currently being incubated at ICUBE UTM. They are a retail solutions company, offering consultation on location optimisation. They hope to see a return to form, with small businesses being able to thrive downtown once more. Small businesses make the city more vibrant, while also creating jobs.

In their second video, they interviewed Cynthia (a U of T alumni) and founder of Cynthia’s Bath Lab at the CNE. Small businesses like hers are an example of the type of retail ventures that Tenatch is looking to help:
Tenatch and the team are planning to release upcoming videos covering the various summer festivals in Toronto. Stay tuned as Tenatch explores what makes the retail market at festivals such a thriving industry.
