New Pilot Program for UNB Graduates

Tags:

The goal of this partnership and pilot program is to move young companies out of the idea stage. Accelerate Entrepreneur will work with all sectors, for example, manufacturing, technical innovation, business processes, IT, social sciences, and design. 

Mitacs is a nation-wide not-for-profit organization that bridges the gap between academia and industry and helps companies employ Masters, PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. Planet Hatch is New Brunswick's flagship business accelerator and entrepreneurial hub located in Fredericton.

“This pilot program will support university-based entrepreneurs who are solving research problems, which in turn, will have positive impacts on our economy and our society,” said Alejandro Adem, CEO and Scientific Director of Mitacs.

To find out if you are eligible for the program or are interested in attending, contact Mitacs local representative Valerie Bonnardel-Vacque at vbonnardel@mitacs.ca.
