Comments on Funding:
No funding involved.
At the end of the six month program, each business will have the opportunity to pitch directly to angel investors through our partnership with the Peterborough Region Angel Network for investment.
One is considered ‘tech’ if its primary business objective is to develop and distribute custom built technology, excluding re-distribution/consultancy.
Applicants must fill out the application form. When completing the application form, select the Women Breaking Barriers option under the subheader ‘Sector’ to indicate the program they are applying for.
Selected companies will be notified prior to the start date about the orientation and onboarding process.
Applicants are not required to submit a business plan or cash flow report when submitting their application if they do not have one at that time.
Other Things to Note:
- This program will intake two cohorts of 10 women aged 18 or older through six months (per cohort) of fast-tracked programming and mentorship to reduce barriers for female founders to grow and scale their businesses.
- As an accelerator program, Women Breaking Barriers is a more intensive time commitment than our regular incubation program. Expect to attend 1-2 virtual workshops per week, a monthly challenge or assignment, and regular meetings with your advisor.
