TMU-led knowledge hub receives $3.8M federal boost to support women entrepreneurship


The Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub (WEKH)–led by Toronto Metropolitan University’s Diversity Institute–has received $3.8M from the Government of Canada. The funding will support the national network’s efforts in facilitating partnerships with diverse business organizations; building relationships with Black, Indigenous, and other diverse women entrepreneur ecosystems; raising awareness about the success of women’s entrepreneurship; and connecting with corporate, government, and media organizations to apply correspondingknowledge and research. “We are pleased to see the continued support of women entrepreneurs by the Government of Canada,” said WEKH Founder Wendy Cukier. “Women entrepreneurs play a critical role not only in creating jobs and driving innovation and growth but also in advancing social development and sustainability.”
