SAINT JOHN– Propel ICT, a technology startup accelerator focused on Atlantic Canada, announced today it was adding two new members to its team as Entrepreneurs in Residence, beginning in January 2017.

In New Brunswick, Richard Jones will join Propel, bringing more than 30 years experience in IT, engineering and entrepreneurship to the position. Previously he held senior roles with Eigen Innovations, East Valley Ventures and Shift Energy.

In Nova Scotia, Charlotte Rydlund will bring 10 years of corporate experience to her new role with Propel. She is also a co-founder of the technology startup PACTA.

“We couldn’t be happier to bring their experience and talent to the team,” said Anita Punamiya, CEO of Propel ICT

The accelerator also held its Demo Day in Halifax earlier this week, with Punamiya calling the event “strong evidence of the vibrancy of the Atlantic Canadian startup ecosystem.”

Applications for Propel ICT’s next Launch and Build Accelerator cohort are now open and available until January 13, 2017.
