Queen's University has partnered with L-SPARK to launch an acceleration program for women founders of tech businesses in the Kingston region. Titled Compass North, the program will provide participants with embedded mentorship and will also include additional features that focus on reducing barriers commonly faced by women entrepreneurs who are building technology-based companies. “Through this program, founders will gain access to hands-on mentorship, strategic training, and access to a tight-knit community of entrepreneurs," said L-SPARK Senior Marketing Manager Stef Reid. "We are thrilled to be a part of this initiative, which helps position Canada as a global leader in technology.” Queen's (ON)
