Sheridan receives almost $1.6M to strengthen EDGE accelerator programming


Sheridan College has received a nearly $1.6M investment from the Government of Canada to strengthen its EDGE programming. EDGE is a social venture accelerator that provides entrepreneurs with a collaborative space so that they can start and scale up their businesses with resources and tools such as mentorship, networking, skills development, and access to financing. The investment will support EDGE in accelerating growth for entrepreneurs who are creating solutions for social, cultural, and environmental issues, and will support entrepreneurs who are from underrepresented groups. Sheridan says that the project will support 200 businesses and 150 new products and services.
