Beyond Boundaries is an accelerator program in the Halton Region aimed to advance women’s economic empowerment. Our objective is to support women entrepreneurs to grow, scale-up their business and reach global markets. The program is part of the Government of Canada Women Entrepreneurship Strategy (WES).

With the recent success of our first cohort, we are thrilled to be launching both our second and third cohort this coming Fall and in early 2021. Through the program, we look to connect participants to opportunities and help increase the economic impact of women-owned businesses in Halton as well as globally. Beyond Boundaries will help participants adopt new technologies, grow their network and further their learnings in sales and financial literacy.


Participants will partake in 4 key online learning sessions followed by 4 mentorship circles with our Beyond Boundaries Mentors. Throughout this program, we encourage all participants to connect and provide input on what you need for your business to succeed.

New this term, we will be reinforcing learning through video content and online webinar workshops. At the end of the cohort, Haltech will host a graduation ceremony for participants and invited industry guests and partners to practice your business pitch and engage with the community.

Content Topics: Think Big & Scale, Sales Excellence, Financial Acumen for Scale, and Technology Strategy
