About this event

AccelerateOTT 2022

Ottawa's Premier Entrepreneurship Event

It’s been years of grit and grind for entrepreneurs, but business leaders, owners and founders have demonstrated incredible resilience. It’s time to recognize the gains and get real about ongoing challenges – to learn and grow together while accelerating the success of diverse, visionary ventures!

Unprecedented times call for unprecedented leadership. Our speakers are changemakers and groundbreakers from every walk of life and they’re pushing through the She-Cession.

At this hybrid conference, you can expect:

  • Authentic and actionable insight from the trenches
  • Lessons learned and secrets to success during a pandemic
  • Revenue generation, customer, funding and scaling-up strategies and tactics
  • And, more!

The first-ever AccelerateOTT launched in 2013. For a decade now, we’ve fuelled the fire of founders, owners, investors and aspiring entrepreneurs. Join us in celebration of our 10th annual AccelerateOTT.

It’s going to be a stellar event!
