“Ignite’s Entrepreneurial Accelerator Programme offers up to 34 seats to it’s Core Accelerator Programme which will commence with an online preparatory session in June. This is where successful applicants have the opportunity to meet their fellow cohort for the first time and prepare for their Ignite journey. The programme begins in earnest with a two-day Bootcamp at the beginning of July consisting of various workshops and a panel with a group of entrepreneurs from our previous cohorts sharing their experience on topics such as mindset & behaviors, lean start-up, business modelling, and more. Bootcamp gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to set the foundation and build camaraderie amongst their peers and the Ignite Team. For the duration of the Core programme, participants will have access to the Hub, a collaborative workspace located in the heart of Hamilton, a network of volunteer experts and mentors, as well as one-to-one enablement coaches. We ask that participants commit to at least 4 hours a week in the Hub, inclusive of Mastermind Groups, enablement sessions and two-hour workshops every other week facilitated by industry experts.

“A second stream of the accelerator programme, called the Fuel Your Ambition Series, offers up to 40 spots to applicants who are not offered a seat on the Core Programme. This 5-month-long series of monthly workshops is offered online and focuses on key concepts aimed at developing an entrepreneurial mindset and continued growth. Participants gain access to a network of like-minded individuals who in turn offer 1:1 peer mentorship and support. The Fuel Series is an opprotunity to build relationships and take the next step on an entrepreneur’s journey with the support of Ignite around you in a less intensive environment than it’s Core programme.
