About Us


To ensure the safety of all participants and staff in our Accelerator, and in alignment with the Government of Ontario’s and Ryerson University’s directives related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the launch of the first cohort of our Accelerator.

The Accelerator was due to launch in May; we will now plan to launch the Accelerator on September 16, 2020. We are also extending our application deadline for the Accelerator program to July 15, 2020. We will continue to monitor all events related to COVID-19 and keep the website updated should there be any new developments.
