Biz accelerator launches

A North Okanagan group is starting a business accelerator for women entrepreneurs.

Community Futures North Okanagan launched the program called Momentum on Monday.

"There are so many successful women entrepreneurs in the North Okanagan and such an appetite for resources to support business growth, so we’re very excited to be offering Momentum here in our region," said Connie Viszlai, business services advisor, CFNO.

"Our goal is to empower women to develop sustainable businesses that are well positioned to take advantage of market opportunities," said Viszlai. "Another cornerstone of the program will be co-learning and leveraging the power of peer mentorship."

CFNO has received four years of funding for Momentum from the Women’s Entrepreneurship Strategy Ecosystem Fund, which is supported by Western Economic Diversification Canada. 

Application information for the fall Momentum intake will be available in August.
