LaunchDal has accepted a diverse range of 11 early-stage companies into this summer’s LaunchPad Accelerator. The 10-week program provides each team with $10,000 and the resources to launch and grow their ventures.
Offered by the Norman Newman Centre for Entrepreneurship at Dalhousie University, the program is now in its fifth year.
“Being accepted into the Launch Pad Accelerator means validation,” said Michael Boyd the Founder of Podcast Atlantic. “It means that this idea has merit and that there is keen interest, and I look forward to working with other entrepreneurs and to being mentored by the business persons I will meet over the next 10 weeks.”
Past graduates of the LaunchPad accelerator include Graphene Innovations & Technologies, Axem Neurotech, and TripNinja.
The program has helped launch over 100 ventures which have produced nearly 800 jobs and have raised $20 million over the past five years.
