Grow Now is a virtual, peer-to-peer learning program dedicated exclusively to women in tech who want to build and scale their business in 2021 and beyond.

The program includes:

  • support and accountability to develop a strategic growth plan that increases the competitive and financial success of your business
  • group brainstorms and problem-solving through mastermind discussions with other women in tech and program facilitators
  • skills training with technology and business experts
  • information sessions with service providers, such as the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service
  • regular one-on-one business advisories with project lead and business advisor, Nasil Nam

The group will meet virtually for a half-day, twice per month (bi-weekly) for eight months beginning in early March 2021.

To be eligible, your business must:
