Ignite – Change your company.
Change the world.

In January the Calgary Chamber launched its Ignite Innovation Accelerator program. The first of its kind in the city, the Innovation Accelerator is designed to help local businesses accelerate their growth and outpace their competition through rapid innovation.
Geared towards second-stage growth oriented businesses, this program is for businesses that already have an innovative product or service, and helps them take that idea from concept to be market-ready in a 90 day sprint.

This facilitated, self-guided 12-week program led by Ignite Innovator in Residence and Director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at MRU, Ray DePaul, alongside subject matter experts, will coach and advise participants through their Go-to-Market Plan development process.

The next cohort starts on April 7 and is filling up quickly.
