ACCEL NORTH is more than a building. More than an accelerator. It is an entrepreneurial ecosystem.
We understand the challenges because we are entrepreneurs and have built successful companies and we’re committed to sharing our experiences within the unique and innovative ACCEL NORTH ecosystem that’s agile and nimble. We can work faster than non-profit accelerators because we are an independently owned a private-public funded accelerator.
Since the creation of ihub an ed-tech incubator and with the addition of Spark Niagara a technology incubator, we have launched over 75 start-up innovators in our internal engines of incubation by providing the blueprints for success to help entrepreneurs in high growth industries. Currently we have over 46 in our ecosystem including innovators scaling at ACCEL NORTH.
We also work with external incubation partners within the Niagara innovation ecosystem such as Brock Linc and Niagara College Research & Innovation and others across Southern Ontario and Western New York.
