About Us

The Caribbean Canadian Association of Waterloo Region is collaborating with members of the vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem of Waterloo Region and Wellington County to develop and deliver a new incubator and accelerator program for Black early-stage and growth entrepreneurs.

This project is funded by the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario.


LiftOff's mission is to provide the Black community access to seasoned business coaches, mentors, and viable funding opportunities to foster the initiation, growth, and scaling of their entrepreneurial ventures.


Our vision at LiftOff is to become the driving force behind the transformation of Black communities through comprehensive support for entrepreneurship, strategic investments, and impactful community initiatives, ultimately empowering Black individuals to realize their full potential and achieve lasting success.
