DMS Transformation Teams


If your business already has a website, but you’re struggling to figure out how to generate business leads or how to navigate all the social media options available to you, a complimentary Transformation Team consultation might be for you.

Transformation Teams offer individual small businesses an opportunity to work with an interdisciplinary team of recent graduates and highly trained students. In a process lasting up to six weeks, each business will work with a remote team staffed by our regional delivery partner: Communitech – an incubator based in Waterloo, Ontario. Transformation teams offer expertise in web design, digital marketing, graphic design, user experience/user interaction (UX/UI) and copywriting.

To be eligible, individual businesses must be registered and/or incorporated in Ontario and they cannot be a home-based business, chain or franchise. Applicants must be able to commit to working approximately 1 hour/day (M to F) during the course of the six-week project.

Examples of eligible businesses that have recently worked with a Transformation Team are:

  • Chickadee Kids Co – transformed from a family café to a kids toy and bookstore
  • Vikings Landing – shifting from exclusively offering in-person events like axe-throwing to a combination including virtual reality events.
