About Us

  • Headed by Valerie Fox, co-founder of the DMZ at Ryerson University – the leading university incubator in Canada, ranked among the top three in the world – The Pivotal Point brings entrepreneurial thinking to organizations around the globe.

    As consultants and advisors, we share the model that has fostered more than 180 startups and helped to create 1,600 jobs in less than five years at the DMZ with clients establishing their own incubators and accelerators to promote innovation and stimulate economic growth.

    In this way, The Pivotal Point not only lays out a map to success, we help academic institutions, SMEs, and government set out a new definition of success itself.

    For schools and universities, it’s a model that supports a new way of learning and encourages the next generation of entrepreneurs. For corporations, it’s a method of designing innovation centres that are truly innovative – ones that enhance the product line and the bottom line. For government, it’s a strategy that can bring revitalization to regions and build community and commerce.

    It’s a model that can be universally applied. And, as our name implies, it’s a philosophy that introduces a shift in thinking – and the tools to adapt, change direction and move forward.
