SnapAP Awarded Funding Through Participation in Propel’s Incite Program
April, 2020. SnapAP participated in a Propel accelerator growth program, which began in early Fall 2019 with three dozen other startups from around Atlantic Canada. The bonus on top of access to proven growth hacking strategies was the prospect of being eligible for a shared investment from the co-sponsors of the Propel program, Fredericton-based NBIF and Halifax-based Innovocorp.
In March, we were delighted to be informed of SnapAP being included in the investment award round along with a number of other cohorts from this innovative Propel program. The announcement notice and details are published in Canada’s national startup news portal BetaKit.
As co-founders, Sionne Roberts and I were delighted with the news of the special investment. We participated in the curriculum and benefited from it greatly. The lessons we learned will help us grow, and in fact, we are already growing in sales funnel potential from those lessons, says Jean-Daniel Drapeau, CEO, Snap Accounts Payable Corporation
