ELLA is Empowering Women to Rise in Entrepreneurship

York University’s ELLA is Ontario’s first accelerator focused on supporting women-led product and service-based businesses.

ELLA programs provide women entrepreneurs with unparalleled support and access to a community of other women founders, top experts, mentors, and supporters to help them grow their business.

“The ELLA program highlights York University’s commitment to empower women entrepreneurs, especially at a time when the global pandemic has disproportionately affected them. ELLA provides women-led product and service-based companies in York Region with the support, tools and community they need to help them scale their businesses.“
