Criteria for e-tools

The Small Business Accelerator is always interested to hear about new tools that may help small businesses and start ups. However, in line with our commitment to promoting the best available resources, all tools have to be carefully reviewed before they are included on our site.

The criteria we take into consideration are:

  • Is there a long term free or low cost option?
  • Is the tool relatively easy to use and implement?
  • Does the tool have the potential to scale up as the business grows?
  • Has the tool been verified or endorsed by any other advisory organisations?
  • Is the tool an example of best practice in this business area?

Our preference is to support Canadian companies but this is not an essential requirement.

If you would like us to consider your tool or software on our next round of updates, please send the details to and address as many of the above questions as possible.
