About this program

The DESIGN program (formerly Young Innovators program) gives these youth the opportunity to access co-working space with real startups in the HUB and access to the advice and guidance of the HUB team. These resources accelerate the ability of young innovators to access other programs and supports in the larger ecosystem – which may include Volta GEAR, COVE StartUp Yard, and Dal Innovates Programs. These innovators are also be able to access the tools and resources needed to explore product development at the HUB through the BUILD program alongside resident companies in the BRIDGE.
