Propel, the Atlantic Canadian tech accelerator, is seeking IT startups to participate in the coming cohort of its Incite Phase I program, which helps entrepreneurs establish their product-market fit.
The pan-regional organization in 2018 launched its Incite accelerator – a two-phase virtual program for early-stage tech startups across the region.
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 attendees. Each company also receives a dedicated coach to give the entrepreneurs individual attention.
“Propel exists for founders and our mission is to help create global companies headquartered in Atlantic Canada,” said the organization in a statement. “Propel is all about startup skill development that is proven to deliver better business outcomes. Our program is customized for each startup based on the life-stage of your company.”
Propel’s online learning includes access to content from Ash Maurya, creator of LEANSTACK and Silicon Valley-based GrowthX’s Market Acceleration Program.
Phase 1 of Incite, which runs through the spring, focuses on validating the problem-solution fit for young companies. You can apply for the program here, and the deadline is Feb. 28.
Last spring, Propel accepted 30 startups into Incite Phase I, up from 18 in the previous cohort. The next cohort of Phase 2 – which helps companies to increase their sales – will open later in the year.
