Propel ICT accepting applications for Launch and Build programs

Moncton-based Propel ICT is accepting applications for the 2017 fall cohort of its Launch and Build programs.

The Launch and Build programs, which are delivered in several cities across Atlantic Canada, run for 12 weeks and support startups at different stages of the business lifecycle. Launch is designed to help entrepreneurs in the early stages of starting a technology-driven business, and focuses on building and testing a minimum viable product (MVP) and signing on early customers.

The Build program is designed for later stage companies that are ready to scale their business nationally and internationally. Build focuses on helping companies accelerate their sales and marketing.

In both programs, selected companies will gain access to resources needed to grow. Participating entrepreneurs will also have the opportunity to attend workshops and connect with experts from various startups from across North America.

In January, Propel announced the launch of its six-month Growth program, which is customized to meet the needs of companies in the growth stage. In March, the accelerator held Amplify, a one-day event that allowed startups and business owners to learn from global growth marketing experts.

Interested founders have until Friday, August 25 to apply.
