“Our industry is at a crossroads, and we need to embrace collaboration if we want to continue to expand our technology solutions,” said Brandon Milner, Senior Vice President, Digital & Data Engineering, EllisDon, in a press release.
The accelerator program was designed to provide a unique platform for selected start-ups, granting them access to pilot projects, industry experts, networking opportunities, and essential resources to cultivate and scale their businesses in Canada.
The program will focus on three primary phases:
- Identification of technology-driven solutions with high potential
- Execution of pilot projects to evaluate new solutions on construction sites across Canada
- Integration of the most promising start-ups into EllisDon’s various business units
