Western Accelerator 2019 Winter Cohort Working In Somerville House

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things, but one thing is for certain - we will continue to offer the same education, mentorship, funding, and community for founders through our accelerator program. Applications have now closed for the Fall 2021 cohort. Our next round of applications will open this October for the Winter 2022 cohort.

What We Offer

The Morrissette Accelerator Fall Program is a great opportunity for high-growth startups to accelerate the growth of their businesses. Over the course of 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. The program culminates in Western Angels' Demo Day that is usually attended by 100+ investors from a variety of industries. 

Founders participating in our programming will receive:
