Frequently Asked Questions

What types of companies are you looking for?

The GB Accelerator invests in both the company and the team. Ideal candidates for the GB Accelerator are incorporated businesses that can scale beyond the region. Companies should have revenues in excess of $250,000 or have a new innovation or idea that has the potential to reach global markets. We choose people and businesses based on their potential, their desire to grow and work with the Accelerator team, and their desire to make an impact. You don’t have to be technical or have a tech idea. We work with a wide range of organizations from manufacturing to food production and technology. Your business and/or founder(s) must be based in the South Georgian Bay region.

Do I need to have registered Intellectual Property (patent, trademark, etc.)?

No – you just need to have an innovative idea, product, service and/or process. We look for companies that have the opportunity and ability to scale and grow into new markets. If you have an opportunity to register IP and need advice, we can help you get there.
