MONCTON – Three Moncton-area companies and one Fredericton company will make their pitch as part of Propel ICT’s Demo Day, June 26, in Halifax. They are four of 11 businesses from the Spring Cohort of Propel’s 12-week spring training program that culminates with the Halifax event.
For over 10 years, Propel ICT has been delivering mentorship, training and networking opportunities through two of its accelerator programs, Launch and Build.
The Launch program supports entrepreneurs during the early stages of starting a technology driven business, with a focus on validating their value proposition, building and testing a minimum viable product (MVP) and signing on early customers. The Launch program will run in three locations at community partner locations – in Fredericton, New Brunswick at PlanetHatch, in Halifax, Nova Scotia at Volta and for the first time in Sydney, Nova Scotia at Navigate.
The Build program is designed for more advanced startups. Held in Moncton at Venn Center, Build draws companies from across Atlantic Canada that have initial market traction and who are ready to scale their business nationally and internationally.
The pitch sessions are meant to be a “community showcase” for the program’s top companies, says Trevor MacAusland, Interim CEO of Propel ICT. But they’re will be potential investors and supporters in the audience, including venture capitalists and representatives from government funding departments and agencies.
