How does it work?

Companies in the Accelerator cohort are accompanied by groups of students from HEC Montréal’s Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility course.

This collaboration with IDEOS includes also:

  1. An introductory workshop on the value proposition of the organization
  2. The definition of a consultation mandate geared towards social and/or environmental impact
  3. Customized coaching sessions
  4. Specialized coaching with MBA students
  5. A presentation of the results of the consultation mandate and professional recommendations
  6. Funding of $8,500 that allows one team of students to implement their recommendations
  7. The opportunity for the organizations of the Accelerator cohort to be part of the IDEOS ecosystem
