Growth

Propel ICT, Atlantic Canada’s startup accelerator, is offering a new program to help foster growth in the East Coast technology ecosystem.

This focused program is for leaders of growing ICT companies who are ready to take the next step in their evolution. Each session of the Growth program is customized to meet the specific needs of its participants, with respect to the fact that an entrepreneur’s time is limited and valuable.

Growth is led by seasoned technology executive Stephen Palmer, a past co-CEO of REMSOFT and COO of Whitehill Technologies.
