The Launch & Build programs are intense and focus on results! Both programs
 are comprised of a 12-week intensive program, beginning with a call for applications and then shortlisted for Selection Camp that competitively chooses companies for entry into the Accelerator. They also have some of the top minds in business and technology from across Atlantic Canada working as volunteer coaches and mentors.

For early stage companies that are pre-revenue; with little to no traction. Planet Hatch, in partnership with Propel ICT, will guide entrepreneurs through the early stages of validating, developing and launching a startup. This program is delivered onsite at Planet Hatch, located in Fredericton New Brunswick in the Knowledge Park.

There is a maximum of 9 spots per cohort. Each Launch program is delivered over a 12-week period that includes in-session workshops, mentorship, business model canvas, updates and presentations, personalized 1:1 coaching sessions, Q&A fireside, panel speakers and webinars. Attendance is mandatory.
