Navigate Startup House provides space, support, and resources, keeping emerging high-growth companies in Cape Breton

Navigate is more than a workspace -- our events and programming foster meaningful relationships that are supportive and inspiring, building an impactful entrepreneur-led community that celebrates creativity, risk-taking, and collaboration. Startup life can be lonely and challenging, but it can also be a lot of fun and immensely rewarding -- and at Navigate, our founders have plenty of peers to share the ups and downs up. Our job is to help make the lows the exception and the highs the rule.

We help startups succeed by providing subsidized office space for growing companies; a common workspace available to all members; and the ability to tap into a worldwide mentor network of experts in the fields of business and technology. We work with regional, national, and global organizations, such as UIT Startup Immersion, and Ladies Learning Code, to provide high quality event programming, including lunch and learns; workshops; pitch competitions; and networking events.

Located in Sydney's Historic North End

We are housed in Sydney's New Dawn Center for Social Innovation -- a beautiful former high school that’s been reclaimed for a multi-use facility for social, educational, and technology-based businesses and organizations, including Ubique, NovaStream, and Cape Breton University’s UIT Startup Immersion Program. From our convenient location in the Sydney Waterfront District, we are only a short walk to parks, galleries, restaurants and cafes, fitness facilities, a library, and a picturesque harbourside boardwalk.
