[ PROGRAM OVERVIEW ]
We are focused on advancing the state of Startup globally, and our Global Startup Accelerator platform is at the heart of this endeavor. We believe that Startup can be for everyone, and we actively bring an advanced and innovative approach to starting up to a place where both experienced and aspiring entrepreneurs can understand and participate.
Our Global Startup Accelerator is delivered online via a specially crafted platform allowing entrepreneurs from anywhere in the world to participate on their own time. Matched with an experienced mentor throughout, each participant is guided on a journey bringing their Startup from idea to market offer by employing a unique combination of interactive learning, experimentation, mentorship, and tools.
Our methodology is a thoughtful blend of cutting edge thinking and actioning, that together creates what we believe is the fastest, and most risk adverse way to take a project from idea to market. We combine the strengths of Lean methodology, with elements of Prototype and Horizon thinking, to create a mind shift and road map that guides entrepreneurs down a quick and risk adverse path to global Startup success.

Online Startup Accelerator
A globally accessible digital platform that guides entrepreneurs on a mentored path from idea to initial product offer. The journey is comprehensive and takes 2 – 3 months to complete. Mentorship, collaboration, iteration and validated learning are foundational to the journey, as is a fundamental mind shift toward lean Startup and rapid prototyping.
Global Launch Pads
A mini incubator opportunity where by entrepreneurs come to our hubs in Canada, Portugal, France, and Hong Kong and find support necessary to launch in each particular market. Mentorship, market insights, methodology training, office space, and access to our technology and innovation network is all part of the Launch pad opportunity.
Community Startup Incubators
With established Global startup Incubators and corresponding Accelerator programs, we also bring our expertise to a local level with pop-up community incubators offering direct training and mentorship to assist communities in their quest for long term economic sustainability.
Youth Entrepreneurship Program
As leaders in Global Startup, we recognize that youth will be better prepared for global transformation if they own the skills that come alongside the entrepreneurial mind shift and the understanding of basic related business. From this comes our Canadian mentored, youth specific entrepreneurial program that turns our leading methodology into a fun and engaging learning opportunity that teenagers globally will devour.
