Innovation Factory is thrilled to announce the launch of its very first cohort of the Founders Fast Track program. This program is designed to equip start-ups for their first fundraise with the essential resources and skill development.  Top graduates of the program will also be invited to join Innovation Factory’s flagship pitch competition, LiONS LAIR, which has established itself as a major event for entrepreneurs and innovators in Hamilton and beyond.

The Founders Fast Track program helps startups to develop and refine their business models, while providing them with the necessary resources and mentorship to help them grow and succeed. The Founders Fast Track journey culminates in a speed pitching event, where each company will have the opportunity to connect and pitch their groundbreaking ideas to a minimum of three angel or pre-seed/seed stage investors.

Of the 20 companies participating in the first cohort of the program, the top 10 best-performing startups will be offered an exclusive invitation to LiONS LAIR., to pitch in front of an audience of 300+ people for cash prizes and more. The event serves as a launchpad to help the winners elevate their companies to the next level, secure talent, increase revenues and attract further investment.
