Carleton Opens Brand New Accelerator for Student Entrepreneurs

Ottawa – Carleton University opened its new Accelerator for student entrepreneurs on Saturday, Jan. 17 as it hosted 45 young women for App Development Day to kick off the Technovation Challenge.

The Accelerator is Carleton’s latest contribution to an extensive suite of entrepreneurship initiatives – a state-of-the-art facility for students working to launch and grow their businesses. It is fitting that its first project is hosting the Technovation Challenge, an intensive three-month curriculum that leads teams of young women through the process of imagining, designing and developing mobile apps and then pitching their startup businesses.
