We Work with Amazing partners...

Propel has formed exclusive partnerships with world-leaders in startup methodology. Driven by the search for better and faster ways for building successful products, Ash Maurya’s LEANSTACK platform has developed a systematic methodology for raising the odds of success built upon Lean Startup, Customer Development, and Bootstrapping techniques.

Recognized as one of the Top 6 Growth programs globally, GrowthX’s MXP program offers the tools and tactics to build a sustainable growth strategy at an early to mid-stage technology company. 

Propel’s Startup Coaches work directly with both LEANSTACK and GROWTHX and have received intensive training on both of these methodologies from Ash Maurya and Sean Sheppard.

In addition to our programming partners, Propel is fortunate to have forged strong relationships within the Atlantic Canada ecosystem with our funders, community partners and investment partners.

"The people who invested time & energy in us became lifelong mentors!"

"I really value how Propel gave you mentors that followed along your path and the people who invested time and energy in us became lifelong mentors.

I think its great to have propel in Atlantic Canada because you can't necessarily go to an accelerator program in the bay area and it's not necessarily appropriate if you plan to grow your business and to have an Atlantic Canadian experience outside the region.

You learn to be with your peers and understand the perspective from here and not try to copy what somebody else is doing in other places."

"If you truly want people to work alongside you, not just support you, Propel is the choice."

"I can tell you from behind the scenes, when I’m working with the team, it’s definitely one of the most experienced and professional and well- organized teams that I’ve been around in an accelerator community and I like their long-term strategy is to help the Maritime's capacity to serve people virtually...."

"The virtual program makes it easy to participate from anywhere!"

"The Propel team has been an important part of Milk Moovement’s success to date.

The virtual program makes it easy to participate from anywhere and the regular check-ins with EIRs have been essential in helping us stay on track to meet our goals. Propel’s EIRs have been, and will continue to be, incredible mentors for the Milk Moovement founder team.

We would recommend the program to any founder that is looking to put the proper supports in place for rapid growth"
