ASCEnt North – Year 2

ASCEnt North 2015

Accelerating Social Cause Entrepreneurs (ASCEnt) NORTH is committed to helping social and environmentally oriented ventures right here in Greater Sudbury. We’re looking for ventures that want to make an intentional, positive, and lasting impact on our community!

Successful candidates get connected to the Innovation Mill’s mentorship group, funding partners, and broader service provider & client network. We’ll help you polish your go-to-market plan, build viable product offerings, grow your support network, and get you on the path to sustainability.

Last year was the first year for the ASCEnt NORTH program. The support, connections, and expertise available through the program lead to some amazing results for the participating ventures.
