The Centre for Business, in partnership with the Town of Collingwood and Rappid Software Design Inc., are investigating the option of starting an accelerator in Collingwood. There is significant evidence that accelerators can expedite the growth of small businesses and have a positive impact on the communities in which they are located. An accelerator, focusing on water technology as well as health and science technology, located within the downtown core of Collingwood, to provide collaborative working space, programming and business support services would provide a higher level of support to help local companies scale and grow quickly.
The project team is seeking a consultant to assist with creating an accelerator in Collingwood including building the business case and identifying required funding.
