Look BackLook Back
Celebrating 10 years of success

Since 2011, Haltech has worked closely with our members to foster an empowering and growth-focused journey by guiding them through the complex reality of building and managing a successful company.

This year and every year, we promise to continue innovating our programs and services just like you do. Everything the Haltech team does continues to align with our vision: to grow technology startups and scalps by serving as the ultimate strategic connector and ecosystem collaborator.

Our journey

Throughout the past decade we’ve witnessed a transformation in the tech start-up community across Halton. From Haltech Demo Night in 2014 to our latest virtual Hi5 Pitch Competition, we pride ourselves in leading with a focus on empowering you and your company to reach the ultimate potential, whatever your unique needs are.

As we look back, we express our sincerest gratitude to our amazing clients, supporters, and community partners across Ontario. Cheers to the next 10 years!

Where it all started

In March of 2011, Haltech was formed under Communitech with just 2 part time staff in the Sheldon Levy Centre at Sheridan College‘s Trafalgar Campus. In August of that year, we were registered as a not-for-profit corporation.

By March of 2014, we had grown to include 5 full-time staff members, 4 part-time, and 5 Entrepreneurs-in-Residence.

Where we are today

It’s been an inspiring journey over the past 10 years. Our most recent and notable initiative includes our enrolment in the 50/30 challenge. This means we have committed to ensuring 50% gender parity as well as 30% representation of underrepresented groups on our board.

We’re a proud leader in Halton with our highest number of women-led startups to date. Since launching Beyond Boundaries in 2019, over 40% of our clients’ companies are now founded or co-founded by women.

While our team is coming to you virtually, we continue to deliver high quality and personal support to our brilliant network of technology start-ups.
