Accelera Program

Accelera Program 2017/18

Date: Tuesdays (second of the month), 9:00 – 10:00am
Location: ONramp in the Banting and Best Institute (100 College St.) Rm 156

The Accelera Program is a round table discussion group led by an industry or academic facilitator on topics that are central to the issues and challenges faced by very early stage start ups within the academic/hospital research environment. This is the fourth year that the program is running; it was piloted within UHN’s Techna and has expanded to include the H2i client cluster.

Each session is a one-hour discussion focused on a single topic. The topic will be introduced in the first 10 minutes by the facilitator and then attendees get a chance to raise their questions or present their experience on the topic to their peers, such that a peer to peer learning experience is facilitated. Space is limited to 25 participants, priority given to H2i clients.  Continental breakfast is provided.
