Accelerator Guelph

First Accelerator Guelph cohort pictured at the Innovation Meetup on October 1, 2018.

If you have a dream to create and grow an agri-food business, this commercialization support program can help you realize it with practical, hands-on workshops and mentorship.

Using the successful model created by the Waterloo Accelerator Centre, Accelerator Guelph guides researcher-affiliated teams to build successful, sustainable enterprise.

This programming will challenge participants to push their ideas to commercialization. Teams will explore an invention’s market feasibility, develop solid business foundations and acquire the executive leadership skills necessary to scale ideas born in research into highly valued products and services.

Recruitment for future Accelerator Guelph cohorts is ongoing and consists of an interview and application process. For more information or to request an interview, please contact
