Propel ICT, the regional accelerator, has announced the 11 companies that will present at its latest Demo Day, to be held Tuesday, Nov. 29, in Halifax.

Demo Day, to start at 5:30 pm at Pier 21, will feature the four graduates from the advanced Build Program, as well as seven companies that have gone through the Launch program, which is designed for younger companies.

Propel ICT alumnus Adrian Bentley will also deliver a short talk on the journey of his company AnalyzeRe, which was recently purchased by Verisk Analytics.

Trevor MacAusland, Propel's Entrepreneur-in-Residence, said the thing he noticed about his group in this cohort was their focus on their core businesses and sales strategies.

“What people see is the shift away from raising capital to building sustainable, revenue-based companies,” said MacAusland. “Only one is raising capital and the rest are focused entirely on generating revenue.”

He added that the company raising capital is Halifax-based GoBumpFree, which helps airline employees book last minute hotel rooms without the risk of cancellation fees.
