On February 23rd, Moneris and Elevate launched Canada’s first ecommerce accelerator, eCommerce North, supporting the next wave of Canadian entrepreneurs. The virtual ribbon-cutting event included remarks from Moneris CEO Angela Brown, the Honourable Mary Ng, and Colonel Chris Hadfield. Leveraging a digital-first platform, the six-month program is designed to help grow and scale purpose-driven ecommerce start-ups with access to successful founders, executives and subject matter experts.
eCommerce North goes beyond traditional programming by providing founders with coaching and mentorship focused on sustainability, equity and mental health. As part of the Government of Canada’s 50-30 initiative, Elevate and Moneris are committed to having 50% of the program’s participants be female founders and at least 30% of participants coming from underrepresented groups.
