Growing our Startup Community Accross Detroit & Windsor

May 17, 2022

Today Bamboo announces a new partnership with Windsor-based The Accelerator in order to help spur new innovation and collaboration across our two regions. 

With growing investments being made in technology and mobility in both Detroit and Windsor, we aim together to help startups expand operations internationally. The new partnership allows one membership to access all of Bamboo’s locations and The Accelerator in Downtown Windsor. Membership includes access to entrepreneurial programming, events, mail address  services and office space, along with a community of support. 

Both Bamboo and The Accelerator have been leaders in ecosystem development for almost a decade, serving diverse community members, and supporting startups. The new membership allows access to a total of 96,000 sq ft and over 1,000 community members. 

From this membership, we hope to see our Detroit based companies look to launch and expand in Windsor, tapping into an affordable and supportive market for international expansion, and vise-versa. 

“This is a unique and ideal partnership, as both organizations are truly dedicated to building our ecosystems and supporting entrepreneurs,” said Bamboo Co-Founder, Amanda Lewan.  “Together, we aim to spur further innovation and collaboration across the border between our growing regions.”

“This partnership is the culmination of our shared dedication over the past decade towards building a vibrant cross-border entrepreneurial ecosystem,” said Arthur Barbut, CEO of The Accelerator. “Through this joint effort, we’re providing a one-of-a-kind opportunity for our client companies to exponentially increase their network and visibility.”

Companies interested in expanding their presence across the border are invited to join the two organizations at an upcoming virtual informational session on Tuesday, June 7th at 1pm EST. Registration is open here:
