It’s Canada’s smallest province, but that hasn’t stopped Prince Edward Island from launching several initiatives to support startups. One of the newest is Startup Zone, an incubator in downtown Charlottetown, which launched last year. It’s already worked with over 30 startups and has started to see companies graduating and moving out and into larger spaces.
