Highline BETA has partnered with RBC to launch RBC Reach,  an accelerator program to help high-impact startups grow while adding value to RBC’s business and consumer clients in new and innovative ways.

RBC Reach will run several cohorts per year, and each will focus on a strategic theme. The program consists of three components:

  • Growth programming
  • Initial investment
  • Commercial pilot and further investment

Benefits of the program include:

  • An opportunity to develop a proof-of-concept for the use of the product or service in partnership with RBC, which could lead to a commercial agreement with RBC

  • 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

  • Access to RBC innovation infrastructure and expertise, including Borealis AI; Vanguard, RBC’s Cybersecurity Lab; and RBC’s Blockchain Centre of Excellence

  • Support raising further funding upon the completion of the program

The Fall 2018 accelerator cohort will focus on delivering solutions that go beyond banking to help RBC’s business clients thrive and potentially transform the way they do business.

Applications for the Fall 2018 cohort are being accepted with a deadline of August 31, 2018. Apply online at: https://angel.co/rbc-reach-cohort-1-fall-2018/apply
