In light of Small Business Week commencing October 20th, the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce and The Accelerator held a joint media conference this morning to announce their new business partnership focused on supporting SMEs in the Windsor-Essex region.

"The Accelerator partnership with the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce is a wonderful example of our efforts to build a truly collaborative business ecosystem. Both organizations and their members will be able to access new networks, resources and benefits that will exponentially accelerate their financial success," stated Arthur Barbut, CEO, The Accelerator.

“Recognizing that small businesses are the backbone of the economy, and in the effort to help foster diversification, the Chamber has been seeking a way to further support start ups and small businesses in Windsor-Essex. A partnership with The Accelerator was the obvious choice in how to accomplish this goal. The initiative will be a mutually beneficial partnership that will grant Accelerator members the many benefits of Chamber membership and also grant Chamber members access to The Accelerator facilities at a discounted rate,” stated Rakesh Naidu, President & CEO, Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce.
