On the Edge of Growth: 20 Entrepreneurs Participate in the Fall 2019 Growth Accelerator

Futurpreneur | November 25, 2019


We welcomed 20 young entrepreneurs from growing and scaling Futurpreneur-supported businesses to Toronto for the Fall 2019 Growth Accelerator, held in partnership with Spin Master. The entrepreneurs came together for three days to network and connect with subject matter experts for mentoring sessions designed to identify effective strategies for growing their businesses.


Along with Spin Master, program partners Ramp Communications, Dentons Canada and MNP also provided their knowledge and expertise in crash courses and group coaching sessions for our cohort. Each entrepreneur had the unique opportunity to meet with business leaders to gain strategic perspective and address their specific business growth challenges.





“The Growth Accelerator is an experience that was really worth it,” says Mylène Cusson, co-founder of Kanevas.


“We met incredible people, all the business were very motivated to share their real stories, and the mentors were really happy to help everyone with their time and resources to help us develop our businesses. Everybody should try to be a part of the Growth Accelerator.“





“It’s always a great moment for me and my team to see participants taking part in the Growth Accelerator and really engage in the activities over the three days,” says Jean-Philippe L’Écuyer, Futurpreneur Canada Program Manager.


“It is our reward and our pride to finally see this event happening, after months and months of work.”


The Growth Accelerator is made possible through the support of long-time partner Spin Master. Over 35 members of the Spin Master team volunteered their time and expertise for our one-on-one mentoring sessions.


Special thanks to Tom Linnermann, VP Spin Master, and Mehdi Rahman, Director of Global Learning and Development at Spin Master, whose dedication and support over the years has helped us build the Growth Accelerator into the success it has become today.
