Wavefront Venture Acceleration Program

Accelerate Success by Accessing Critical Resources

The Venture Acceleration Program, an initiative of BCIC, 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, an initiative of BCIC, 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 is available in the Acceleration Centre, please contact us for more details.
