Propel Entrepreneurship

About Us

Coworking Space

Propel is quickly emerging as one of the Southwestern Ontario's most active startup accelerators.  Located at Western University, the centre provides co-working space, seed funding, world-class mentorship, and hosts training programs, events and workshops for startups at all stages of growth.  Propel is also the home of PSI, a sales-focused incubator program for the region’s most promising entrepreneurs.

Propel is part of the Campus-Linked Accelerator program, an initiative of the Ontario Government and administered through the Ontario Centres of Excellence. Propel is partnered locally with LEAP Junction at Fanshawe College.
