McGill's Digital Accelerator

What is the McGill Digital Accelerator?

McGill’s Dobson Center for Entrepreneurship, in partnership with the Information System Area at Desautels, will offer digital services to McGill affiliated startups, SMBs, and non-for-profits in need of digital acceleration.

The current social and economic context has required that many business models that solely relied on physical engagement, now need to also expand to digital platforms to remain competitive. Small businesses however may not have the skillset and resources to do so.  The objective of McGill’s Digital Accelerator program is to facilitate the transformation to Digital with a holistic, integrated approach to problem-solving, new business models, and digital strategy.

Our Digital Accelerator is an advisory program that involves multidisciplinary teams of students with backgrounds in Information Systems, Business Analytics, and Management supported by technical and Business Mentors and Professors.

The program aims to help these organizations by offering a no-cost service. Each project will be done by students under the supervision of a mentor and will begin as early as July 2020. Examples of projects are:

  • Create or modify a website
  • Enable remote operations for staff or customers
  • Develop data visualization
  • Help with database design, management and data analytics
