Attention all Quebec-based women entrepreneurs! Are you looking for a supportive, growth-oriented, and inclusive environment to take your business to the next level? Look no further than the ELLEvate Women Entrepreneurs Pre-Accelerator program.

We are thrilled to announce that applications are now open for our virtual 3-month program.
