Applications are now open for the Fall program. 


What We Offer

The Morrissette Accelerator program is a great opportunity for high-growth startups to accelerate the growth of their businesses. Over the course of 12-15 weeks, ventures accepted into the program will receive hands-on mentorship and educational training from in-house experts and industrial partners. Our goal is to accelerate the life cycle of high-potential ventures and to compress a year’s worth of learning into a few months for these entrepreneurs.

Our program is a critical component of the cross-campus entrepreneurship ecosystem at Western University and is open to all Western students, faculty, and recent alumni with an expectation of a full-time commitment (Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.).

Founders participating in our programming will receive:
