The BSC Innovation and Entrepreneurship program aims to increase job creation and competitiveness in the Montreal Black community by building local capacity through the development of business incubators and innovation centers.
In 2004, The Black Studies Center in partnership with Concordia University began a small business incubator initiative to stimulate the growth of local businesses.It is the only program of its kind in the Montreal Black Community. Today, this initiative continues to support new businesses both physical and virtual. The business incubator initiative provides peering of individuals with financial and technical assistance to incubators, develops good
practice toolkits for incubator managers, and facilitates regional and global networks for business managers. Recent Monitoring and Evaluation Impact Assessment evaluated the performance of the BSC incubator program and concluded that they have had a tremendous impact on realization of local innovation, SME and job creation, economic empowerment of disadvantaged groups, and on creating an enabling environment in their local communities.
