Stacking the odds in your startup’s favor.
AO’s new Acceleration Stack provides access to fresh opportunities for startups going through key stages of venture development and fundraising to access mentorship programs at a subsidized cost. It features five core programs; Venture Validation, Market Ready, Fundable, Okanagan Angel Summit and ThreeSixty. In addition to a structured program experience, each engagement is designed to connect founders to Accelerate Okanagan’s member network and the greater tech ecosystem.
The Acceleration Stack focuses on:
- Validating a business model
- Bringing a product to market
- Accessing growth capital
- Preparing a business for financing
- Leadership development
- Connectivity to a community of peers, mentors, and subject matter experts
Find a program that makes sense for you and your startup. All programs are delivered by AO team members, Executives-in-Residence, and Investors-in-Residence. Participants can join sessions in-person from our Kelowna office or join virtually.
Benefit from developing your business acumen, leadership skills, and building a network of peers and mentors. Read on to learn about each program and see how your startup could be a fit to participate.
Not sure which program is a fit for you? We encourage you to apply anyways or attend our Programs Info Session on July 27. We would love to learn about what you are working on and see how we can help. If we don’t have the right services for you, we’ll direct you to available resources in our network.
These programs have been developed in-house by the Accelerate Okanagan team and subject-matter-experts, with insights and feedback provided from local founders. They are supported by funding provided by Innovate BC and NRC-IRAP.
