Welcoming Our Summer 2020 Cohort!

Three new social ventures are joining the SVZ this summer
June 23, 2020

We're excited to welcome three new startups into the Social Ventures Zone this summer! Accelerate Her Future, Rent-Able, and tethr are the newest members to join the SVZ.

We're proud of the social impact work these entrepreneurs are doing, whether it's advocating for womxn of colour pursuing careers in STEM and business, protecting renters amidst the COVID-19 crisis, or providing a safe space for men to speak about their mental health.

Here's a little more info about our new ventures:

Accelerate Her Future: This career accelerator provides tailored programs to help womxn of colour launch their careers in business or STEM while building networks of solidarity and action. 

Rent-Able: Rent-Able aims to reduce the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on renters in Ontario and help them remain housed by creating a grant portal that will dispense funds to those in need of rent relief. 

tethr: This app aims to break the negative stigma around men’s mental health by providing a peer-to-peer support community for men to connect with each other, receive support, and have honest conversations about their struggles.

While programming for the Summer 2020 cohort will be delivered virtually, the SVZ looks forward to providing guidance and support to our new members as they begin their journey at our incubator. 

Applications for the SVZ Fall 2020 cohort will open in August. Until then, learn more about what we offer.
