Wavefront BCIC Venture Acceleration Program

Accelerate Success by Accessing Critical Resources

The BC Venture Acceleration Program is a structured venture development program that helps early-stage entrepreneurs in BC grow their companies.

The program is delivered by a team of Executives in Residence (EiRs) that guide and coach early-stage companies through defining business models for sustained growth. Wavefront does not take equity stakes in companies, making companies free to grow on their own terms.  The Venture Acceleration Program is fee-based, accepting companies that wish to work remotely or directly within the Accelerator Centre in Vancouver.

Offering exceptional value, the basic fee to participate in the program is $200 per month. Office space in the Acceleration Centre starts at $300 per month for a designated cubicle.
