Join the Innovation Cluster for their Women Breaking Barriers virtual information session on Tuesday, February 2nd from 12-1pm on Zoom.

This is an opportunity to discuss eligibility requirements, the application process, programming information, and the expectations for founders.

About the Program

This program will intake two cohorts of 10 women aged 18 or older through six months (per cohort) of fast-tracked programming and mentorship to reduce barriers for female founders to grow and scale their businesses.

With targeted training, mentorships, collaboration, and access to funding, Women Breaking Barriers is poised to change the lives and trajectory of female-led companies. The program is intended for startups with fewer than 10 employees or for those who are just at the idea stage, the program will provide learning, growth, and funding opportunities through a process designed to bring great minds together.

At the end of the six month program, each business will have the opportunity to pitch directly to angels investors in the Peterborough Region Angel Network for investment. This will give the companies the chance to not only receive investment but also have direct access to a group of experienced individuals with a wide network.

If you are accepted into the program, you will join like-minded founders as we take you through perfecting your business plan, developing your entrepreneurial skills, networking and making connections to grow your business, refining your pitch skills and growing your business. At the end of the six months you will have the unique opportunity to pitch directly to the Peterborough Region Angel Network, which has invested over six million dollars into companies so far.

Those not accepted in the first cohort will be placed on the waitlist for the second cohort.
