Entrepreneurship is lonely and challenging. Working together with other entrepreneurs is exciting and rewarding. The Compass is a community of entrepreneurs dedicated to mutual success.


When you join the Compass, you’re only one degree away from a network that spans Alberta and beyond. From finding the right customer to getting your stuff across the border, we know someone who can help.


The Compass hosts a wide variety of experts on marketing, accounting, finance, legal, and more to help jump start your business. Our courses get you and answers you need when you need them.


Use the power of the crowd to hold yourself accountable and beat the procrastination blues. Formal and informal coaching to help take your business to the next level.


Working on your business is hard when you’re too busy working in your business. Our staff and mentorship network will help point you in the right direction and will even jump in and lend a helping hand when you need it.


Meet like minded souls. The Compass hosts regular networking events like Startup Drinks, One Good Cup, and Lunch and Learn. Meet future customers or business partners over coffee and beer.


They don’t teach you how to run a company at school. The Compass puts you in the same building with like-minded people and complimentary skill sets. Learn what you need to know when you need to know it.


Being a part of the Compass will help you stand out from the competition and get in front of local investors and lenders. We’ll help you understand what you need so you get the best bang for your buck.

Our annual partnership program is a sponsored opportunity for companies that we know can make a huge difference. We are looking to connect with companies that are in a position to offer long-term value to our entrepreneurs through their products, services, networks, and connections. Contact us to learn more.
