Intellectual property firm Bereskin & Parr LLP donated $50,000 to help finance startup grants offered to participants of The Entrepreneurship Hatchery program at the University of Toronto Engineering.
The money will be used to support students who are prototyping and creating products for their businesses, said a Nov. 14 announcement.
The Entrepreneurship Hatchery, one of two startup accelerator programs established by the U of T Engineering, offers services and hosts events for student entrepreneurs. The Hatchery has lent a hand to more than 80 startups in the last five years.
