Accelerator | RBC Ventures
Why partner with RBC Reach?

We’re not your typical accelerator.

RBC Reach expedites the path to a commercial agreement and potential investment.

Our accelerator is an opportunity to collaborate closely with RBC Ventures to develop a proof-of-concept, which could lead to a commercial agreement with RBC.

We also offer mentorship, coaching and networking with RBC and Highline BETA executives, founders and domain experts with unparalleled understanding of and access to Canadian consumers and businesses.

RBC Reach runs several challenges per year, and each will focus on a strategic theme or problem over the three to six months that the project runs.


Applications are now open!

We're currently looking for solutions that can deliver exceptional experiences and unparalleled value to our clients across the following strategic themes:

B2B: solutions that solve problems related to running a business and can help support the growth of small and medium sized businesses across Canada

Health & Wellness: solutions that focus on helping the ageing population maintain their independence or help new parents manage their family life

Mobility: solutions that help consumers discover new destinations, navigate and move freely across towns and cities

Companies interested in expediting their path to a commercial agreement with RBC and potential investment should apply today here.
