about The Dockyard

Because That First Step Is Often the Hardest One to Take.

Democratizing Entrepreneurship, Leadership and Success

We've been getting situated for the last two years. The initial idea was to set up a startup and small business accelerator in rural New Brunswick to move the local economy towards diversification.

It didn't take long to realize what was needed in smaller communities all over Canada was a way to jumpstart an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem. Through one on one coaching, consulting, event planning, education and training initiatives, we've begun our mission to empower the would-be, could-be and should-be entrepreneurs and leaders in Atlantic Canada and look forward to continuing the journey with them.

A Message from our CEo

The World Doesn't Wait for Your Friends to Get It

Not all business ideas are million or billion dollar ones. But they don’t have to be. If you have an idea that you feel will make a positive impact on your community, in your customer’s lives and most importantly in your life, then we’d love to help you make it a reality.

Our mission was simple, to democratize entrepreneurship in rural Canada, we’d have to organize and deliver access to the same resources and expertise that larger urban centres take for granted. I believe we have done that in spades!

The reason we called it Dockyard was because the journey of an entrepreneur is filled with hard miles, brutal storms and struggles to stay afloat. We wanted to create a safe harbour where leaders could patch themselves up, restock and go back stronger!
