No, it’s a non dilutive accelerator program! 

We will take a look at every application and reach out whatever happens. Only the company selected to the final shortlist will be interviewed.

It’s a 4-month program, with 2 weeks of orientation, followed by 2 weeks of onboarding, 5 sprints and 2 off-boarding weeks. It is optional, however we recommend you join us in Montréal for two in-person events at the beginning and at the end of the program. 

We aim to select 6 companies for the upcoming Fall cohort.

To accelerate your growth and support you at best in a selection of business areas we have identified as key to your success as a fintech founder, we have designed the program around a series of sprints. The program consists of 5 sprints: Startup Bootcamp, Venture Financing, Pilot / POC strategy, B2 Marketing & Enterprise sales, Pitch training / Demo Day. 

For the upcoming cohort, Demo Day will be part of the Fintech Forum, an event organized by Finance Montreal, happening in November 2022 (exact dates to be announced!). 

Upon graduation, all of the founders will join the Alumni network, and will continue to have access to our support systems, events and initiatives! We are always a zoom call or an email away!
