Invest Ottawa Invites Applications for GrindSpaceXL Fall 2013 Cohort

Invest Ottawa announced this week that they are now accepting applications for their fall cohort of their GrindSpaceXL program.

GrindSpaceXL is a four-month, milestone-based program which combines a core curriculum plus tailored individual business development plans designed to build a company that can quickly grow, launch a successful product and find funding.

GrindSpaceXL offers targeted and intensive entrepreneurship training; extended one-on-one mentorship; specialized advisors to help companies become investor-ready; a $5,000 grant with no equity required; an opportunity to pitch to venture capitalists and angel investors; and office space at Invest Ottawa’s 80 Aberdeen Street location.

While the program is open to companies whose core product or service is technology-based, this cohort will place greater emphasis on software-based startups.

To apply to this competitive program, companies must be incorporated, headquartered and operating in Ontario and less than five years old. Interested startups can apply online
