Propel has named 32 companies to Phase 2 of its Incite program – its biggest intake yet in the virtual tech accelerator.
The chosen companies span Eastern Canada. Eleven companies are from Nova Scotia, nine from Newfoundland and Labrador, seven from New Brunswick, and four from P.E.I. There is also one company from Quebec.
Because the Incite curriculum is delivered online, there are no restrictions on where the participants are based, and mentors from all over the world are able to interact with the attendees. Each company also receives a dedicated coach to give the entrepreneurs individual attention.
“The momentum of Incite is building and we are thrilled that a number of the companies were referred to us by our alumni,” said Propel CEO Barry Bisson in a statement. “We are confident this cohort boasts many of the most promising startups in our region and we cannot wait to work with them.”
Phase 2 of Incite runs for seven months and aims to help the founders build a scalable and repeatable sales process using the GrowthX methodology for market development. Silicon Valley-based GrowthX helps people to commercialize innovation through an online platform that allows companies to access the content as they need it. Propel has regional exclusivity agreements to use GrowthX’s programming.
Companies enrolled in Phase 2 will have a chance to receive funding by several means, including a $50,000 investment commitment from the New Brunswick Innovation Foundation and Innovacorp, a $25,000 cash prize, and a $30,000 investment for the winner of the Gerry Pond Sales Award.
