Sandbox is the community arm to the DMZ – North America’s leading business incubator. Sandbox is an open and collaborative space that provides access to a curated list of creative, digital and entrepreneurial skills and opportunities to students and the wider community. Unlike other learning spaces, the programs are free, interdisciplinary, hands-on and skills-based.
Sandbox works with Ryerson University, the Zone Network and various community groups to inspire a culture that values, celebrates and fosters entrepreneurial and innovative thinking.
At Sandbox, students and the community are offered:
- Programs: Some of North America’s leading organizations – RBC, RED Academy, Red Bull, Accenture – work with Sandbox to offer a curated list of free programs in the arts, business and tech landscapes.
- Idea Consultations: Individuals can book consultation sessions with Sandbox advisors to talk about potential ideas they have. Sandbox advisors are subject matter experts in market validation, early-stage growth, customer acquisition, sales, funding, UI/UX, marketing and communications.
- Workspace: Sandbox is a unique space on the third floor of the SLC. It holds up to 90 people at a time, and is available as a workspace when events/programs are not being held.
- Events: Sandbox hosts innovative and entrepreneurial events in business, design, marketing, finance, digital media and networking, collaborating with some amazing departments and groups in the community.
Sandbox inspires and empowers students and communities to try new things, to build and rebuild, to experiment, to test, to collaborate and to play. Visit their website to find out more.
