The ESE Idea Accelerator is a program that provides support for individuals and organizations in Peel, Toronto and York Region to explore and strengthen an early-stage 'employment social enterprise' business idea. For Fall 2019, TEF's Accelerator will focus on supporting early-stage ESE ideas that create employment opportunities for youth facing barriers to employment – for example: RainscapeTO is an ESE that employs Indigenous youth to offer eco-landscaping services with a focus on the installation of rain gardens and other beautiful Earth-friendly landscapes.
