Propel has announced 15 companies will be participating in Phase 2 of Incite.   Phase 1 began in September 2018.

 

Phase 2 of Incite focuses on building a sales engine while Phase 1 of Incite focuses on validating the problem/solution fit.  The entire program runs 12 months.

 

Dividing the accelerator into two phases signals a shift in the way Propel works with companies.

 

“We are always looking for the most exciting companies to work with,” said Barry Bisson, CEO of Propel.  “We’re also continuously evaluating the companies we’re investing our time in to ensure we’re maximizing our impact on the region and startup ecosystem.”  

 

The companies who are participating in Phase 2 cover a variety of industries and are spread out across Atlantic Canada. What they have in common is they have developed a product with strong leads to customers and are now looking to ramp up their sales process.  Additionally, many have already seen significant revenue.

 

The companies participating in Phase 2 of Incite are:
