FounderFuel helps founders reach escape velocity

Our
2019
Cohort

A 3-month intensive accelerator program that helps tech founders develop the skillsets and mindsets to turn their vision into world-changing companies.

4 AXES TO ACTION

With four axes focused on Narrative, Networking, Execution and Leadership, new founders learn and grow, hone their business models and stories and take their companies to the next level, all while getting investment ready.

INVALUABLE INSIGHTS

Mentorship is at the heart of the FounderFuel experience. We provide a gateway to one of the premier startup networks in Canada through mentor matching, founder talks, and high-value social encounters.

A CLEAR DELIVERABLE

FounderFuel culminates with Canada’s biggest Demo Day — 1,000+ members of Canadian tech gathered to hear the cohort’s pitches. It is the clear deliverable that motivates vision and drives execution, since great pitches need great numbers!

LEARN FROM THE PROS

“It’s exciting to see how the startups evolve, from the first time you meet them to hearing them pitch at Demo Day!”
