Meet the 25 Startups enrolled in the Nobellum Innovator Program
SCARBOROUGH, Ontario, Canada - As part of Nobellum’s mandate to support the start-up of 100 Black-owned businesses in STEM by 2025, the Nobellum Innovator Program was created in partnership with the University of Toronto, whose True Blue Fund matches the Nobellum True Blue Accelerator Fund. This program provides early-stage startups the opportunity to receive mentorship, education, and funding at no cost to them. This month, 25 businesses were welcomed into the program, and 10 of them are getting ready to pitch at the Innovathon pitch event on August 26th, taking place at the University of Toronto Scarborough.

Nobellum is dedicated to creating generational wealth throughout the African and Caribbean diaspora. They want the Black dollar to circulate through Black-owned businesses, ensuring spending power stays in the Black community for longer than ever before. Throughout their time in our program, our 25 start-ups will pitch their ideas for an audience and judges to gain exposure and receive award prizes. They will work with coaches like Mike Orr (Co-Founder, Grapevine6) and Dr. Georgette Zinaty (CEO & Founder, Women Helping Empower Women – WHEW!) who will share insight into the entrepreneurial journey through their years of expertise. The time spent in the Nobellum Innovator Program will help these startups bring their innovative business ideas to life!
