Mitacs Accelerate Student Entrepreneur

Company Requirements

  • The student and postdoctoral fellow eligibility for Accelerate Entrepreneur is similar to standard Accelerate.
  • Students and post-doctoral fellows at Mitacs partner colleges and universities in Canada are eligible.
  • Additional eligibility criteria must be assessed for the start-up and the incubator partner for participating in a Mitacs Accelerate Entrepreneur project for your consideration:
    • You need to be actively housed at an approved incubator facility for the duration of the proposed project. Don’t see your incubator on the list?
    • Your proposed research project must further develop the research or technology at the core of your start-up business
    • Note that your start up will need to be incorporated to receive any funding, and you will need an academic supervisor at you’re academic institution who can hold and disburse the funding
