Accelerate OTT 2021 Hybrid Conference

October 27, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm


It has been a year of grit and grind for entrepreneurs. But it’s time to celebrate resilience and gains. To get real about ongoing challenges. And to accelerate the growth of diverse and visionary ventures.

AccelerateOTT 2021 has women founders and funders leading from the stage and airwaves. Our speakers are changemakers and ground-breakers. And they’re pushing through She-Cession. At this epic one-day conference, you can expect:

  • Authentic and actionable insight from the tech and entrepreneurial trenches
  • Secrets of success and lessons learned during the pandemic
  • Scale-up, revenue gen, customer, and funding strategies to accelerate your growth

Get Ready – We’re Going Hybrid

Different Delivery. Same Epic Event.

Manjit Minhas, Co-founder & CEO of Mihas Breweries, Distilleries and Wineries, Investors, and Dragon on CBC’s Dragon’s Den, headlines the conference, featuring the SheBoot Pitch Competition showcasing nine women founders as they vie for $200,000 in investment. 

Now in its ninth year, our annual flagship entrepreneurial conference is going hybrid.

That’s right. Live and online real talk, pitches, and networking are taking place from three fantastic locations:

  • Bayview Yards, Ottawa’s one-stop business acceleration shop and innovation hub
  • Hub 350, the new gateway to Kanata North Tech Park, the largest of its kind in Canada right here in Canada’s Capital, managed by KNBA; and
  • Wherever you are on planet earth – steaming live in real-time to your favorite device on the Hopin platform

If you are a founder, aspiring entrepreneur, investor, or business owner, this event is not to be missed.
