Submitting your candidacy is easy. You must:

  • Be a local entrepreneur from Quebec

  • Offer a unique product

  • Provide added value or the potential to bring something new to a sales category

And, of course, have sales potential — it’s as simple as that.

If your product is almost ready to launch but needs to jump over a few hurdles, you’ve come to the right place at the right time.

If your product or idea is not yet ready to reach Quebec consumers, don’t worry — we’d be pleased to refer you to one of our business partners to help you move forward.
If your product is 100% ready to hit the market and gets selected for the Local Accelerator program, we’ll get you straight onto the shelves of local IGAs.

From merchandising to marketing, logistics and finance, each Acceleree will benefit from personalized support tailored to their needs, as well as exclusive access to all IGA resources and business partners. No matter the hurdle, we’ll be there to get you to the finish line.
