Regional Tourism Organization (RTO8) is pleased to offer Acceler8, a community based Business Mentoring Program

This program is geared to existing tourism sector businesses within the Kawarthas Northumberland region. The tourism industry was one of the hardest hit by the pandemic and as we focus on recovery, we believe a mentoring program can help your business rebuild and achieve business growth.

Are you looking to:

  • Attain your business goals
  • Strategically approach your business challenges
  • Find ways to be more efficient and profitable

Acceler8 is a highly-personalized approach that focuses on enabling businesses to succeed. By working with seasoned business experts, you will have access to one-on-one long-term mentoring to help you address key challenges and opportunities facing your business. Mentors are existing or retired business owners and specialists in one or more key business disciplines.

If you are an accommodator, retailer, attraction or food & beverage provider within Kawartha Lakes, Peterborough City or County or Northumberland County, Acceler8 could be the help you are looking for to grow your business.
