SaaS focused accelerator from San Francisco and New York, backed by leading operators, chooses Hilo for its launch in Toronto.
“We are helping to build the next generation of great SaaS companies. With our four month program, hands-on mentorship, and network of world-class operators, we act as an extension of our teams and help them prosper.” —Acceleprise
Hilo was selected to join the inaugural program, embedded in Toronto’s tech ecosystem, but with the added benefit of being part of their U.S. network, with access to additional experts from their SF and NYC programs.
As Hilo works to fulfill its mission to be the largest community of connected people in buildings, tapping into the Acceleprise brain trust, that includes industry leaders with extensive operating experience, is like adding jet fuel to our business engine and gives us a huge competitive advantage.
The Acceleprise team is led by Michael Cardamone, Managing Director & General Partner. Michael was an early employee on the BD team at Box and more recently led BD and partner marketing at AcademixDirect.
The Toronto cohort is under the direct supervision of Jonah Midanik. An engineer by trade, Jonah has spent the last twenty years at the intersection of marketing and technology as a serial entrepreneur in Canada.
Overnight, our team is enriched by their knowledge in product, sales, marketing, growth hacking, fundraising, hiring, and more. With a SaaS focus, Acceleprise has assembled a best-in-class network of founders, mentors, strategic partners and investors, all aligned to accelerate our product development and market growth.
