Edge Accelerator


The Fierce Founders Accelerator is the first female-focused accelerator in Canada. It was created to encourage greater diversity in tech by eliminating roadblocks female entrepreneurs often face when starting companies.


Communitech Edge is designed for validation-stage companies who have a product in the market, have paying customers and are generating $3K-$5K MRR. Edge is best for companies that are ready to start building out their sales process and team.


Participating startups receive six-months residency at the Communitech Hub and mentoring and business support from Communitech’s Growth Coaches.

About Communitech
Communitech was founded in 1997 by a group of entrepreneurs committed to making Waterloo Region a global innovation leader. At the time it was crazy talk, but somehow this community managed to pull it off. Today, Communitech is a public-private innovation hub that supports a community of more than 1400 companies — from startups to scale-ups to large global players.


Communitech is a member of the Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs and helps tech companies start, grow and succeed in three distinct ways.


  • Communitech is a place – the center of gravity for entrepreneurs and innovators. A clubhouse for building cool tech and great companies.
  • Communitech delivers programs – helping companies at all stages with access to capital, customers and talent. We are here to help them grow and innovate.
  • Communitech partners in building a world-leading ecosystem – making sure we have all the ingredients (and the brand) to go from a small startup to a global giant.
