About the Forge:
The Forge is an accelerator program and physical space that takes start-ups and fast tracks them to the point of investment and sales validation.
What drives an entrepreneur to accelerate their business through to sales validation and efficiency? Firstly, you give them an environment with other entrepreneurs facing similar issues and growing pains. Secondly, you add a regiment of start-up 101 programming to enhance their skills and improve their decision making abilities. Lastly, you surround those start-ups with mentors and other successful business people who can help those entrepreneurs avoid the obvious potholes.
The Forge creates this environment through partnership with McMaster University, Innovation Factory, and Mohawk College.
