Who We Are

The Lazaridis Institute for the Management of Technology Enterprises was created to support growth-oriented Canadian technology companies. Developed through investments by Mike Lazaridis and the Government of Ontario, the Lazaridis Institute is based in Waterloo, Canada, part of the Toronto-Waterloo Region Tech Corridor.

What We Do

The Lazaridis Institute empowers current and emerging technology firms to scale rapidly into globally competitive enterprises. Our approach tackles this important challenge from several angles:

  • A unique program for C-level executives that identifies the very best Canadian tech firms who are ready to scale and brings them together through personalized mentorship with experts who have ‘been there and done that’ when it comes to growing a company.
  • Insightful research that looks to develop new knowledge about innovation, management and disruption as it relates to tech companies.
  • Through programs creating a direct link between cutting edge, international research; the best, proven practices in global scaling; and curriculum to empower future Lazaridis School graduates with the knowledge they need to make a difference in emerging companies.
