After nearly five years as the heart and soul of Propel ICT, Trevor MacAusland is moving on to a new role with 3Plus, the economic development corporation for the cities of Dieppe, Moncton and Riverview. But Trevor will remain closely connected to Propel ICT. He will guide Propel's Build program in Greater Moncton for the accelerator’s next cohort of entrepreneurs. "Trevor's commitment and hard work is a big reason why Propel ICT has evolved to become one of Canada’s most respected accelerators. He has been a major catalyst for the growth of the East Coast startup scene," says Jeff Thompson, Chair of the Propel ICT Board. "We are fortunate he will continue to make his mark by leading the Build program in Greater Moncton."
Under MacAusland's leadership and with the support of the organization’s Board, Propel ICT launched and completed its ambitious Launch 36 program which aimed to launch 36 Atlantic Canadian startups in three years. While some thought it couldn’t be done, the program exceeded its goal, with over 40 startups moving through the program in less than three years.
"I’ve met so many talented and committed people during my time with Propel ICT. It really gives me hope for the future of Atlantic Canada," says MacAusland. "I am grateful that I can continue to be a part of Propel ICT as it moves forward."
"I look forward to a close working relationship with Trevor in his new role at 3Plus," says Gary Dinn, Propel ICT CEO. Dinn also indicated that an announcement of a new staff member for Propel ICT will be coming soon.
