Propel FastTrack


Propel FastTrack is a new series that gives entrepreneurs the skills and strategies they need in as little time as possible, so that they can focus on building their company. Rather than touching on a range of different topics in a high-level way, we’re focusing on one essential area at a time.

The first theme is a focused, targeted 5-week program with 321 Growth Academy, where you’ll learn the essential skills and strategies needed to help supercharge your sales and marketing game. Propel FastTrack: Sales & Marketing runs from March 20, 2023 – April 20, 2023. 

Check back here for more themes of Propel FastTrack.  


  • Your company is based in Edmonton or the surrounding area 
  • You have an early-stage startup or business 
  • Your business/product is either: 
    • Tech-enabled, meaning through technology is scalable and it can grow beyond your own personal expertise, availability, and geographic location. 


    • Unique and innovative, meaning it’s based on a process or product that is not easily replicated. 
  • You must demonstrate traction (revenue) towards commercialization and are prepared to grow. 
  • You can commit 6 hours per week for five weeks 

NOTE: This program is available to those based on readiness, and whether you meet the criteria. Previous Edmonton Unlimited programming is not a requirement.  


Sales and Marketing:  

  • How to build your Sales engine and a repeatable and scalable process 
  • Practical stuff: prospecting, qualifying, unit price economics, demos, but much more 
  • Go-to-market strategies   
  • Validate your business and sales model 
  • Learn Business essentials and connect with other founders  
  • Get expert advice and coaching on fixing what’s not working 


*Applicants for Velocity must have achieved initial product market fit with trending sales growth, revenue and a team to scale your business.
