Department of Computer Science Innovation Lab
The Department of Computer Science Innovation Lab (DCSIL) is a cross-disciplinary start-up accelerator and incubator at the University of Toronto. As an accelerator, we work with faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students to develop and commercialize start-up ventures coming from U of T’s applied research teams. As an incubator, we deliver real-world experiential entrepreneurship courses that teach students from all fields how to apply their subject matter expertise alongside lean start-up methodologies in customer and product development to create saleable prototypes for market validation.
We work with our vast network of industry partners to solve real-world problems, and bolster that experience with industry mentorship and sponsored pilot projects.
Our talent development program connects students interested in technical careers in industry and start-ups with a variety of employers offering job and internship opportunities. This gives students great professional development support, and industry a first view of the outstanding emerging talent at U of T.
Your support will foster a new generation of pioneering entrepreneurs.
