Building a community of successful Tamil entrepreneurs

The Tamil Canadian community is a vibrant and growing part of Canada’s diverse cultural and economic landscape. Despite their contributions to the Canadian economy, many start-up companies owned by Tamil Canadians face challenges in accessing the resources they need to succeed. Our goal is to support these companies and help them reach their full potential by bringing together the Canadian Tamil community to support Tamil entrepreneurs starting their own businesses. This is a not-for-profit initiative with the only objective to support Tamil entrepreneurs.


The Tamil Venture Zone is a non-profit entrepreneurship accelerator program dedicated to fostering a community of emerging entrepreneurs. Our mission is to provide them with the necessary support and networking opportunities to propel their businesses to new heights. The program encompasses a comprehensive 8-week curriculum addressing key challenges, including securing initial sales, personalized mentorship from accomplished business leaders, and a culminating pitch competition open to the public.

Founding Organizations

The Tamil Venture Zone is brought to you in a joint partnership between the Canadian Tamil Chamber of Commerce, the Canadian Tamil Professionals Association, and Good News Ventures.
