ideaBoost: Audience Engagement Report explores how the first cohort of IdeaBOOST accelerator participants made use of audience engagement methods as they progressed through the program, which methods they used and with what results. In addition, it examines significant patterns from the findings across all participating teams. The research, conducted by CFC Media Lab and Zancom Media, helped develop a methodology of case studies and cross-case analysis to compare the results of the seven teams.
In April 2013, the CMF announced two pilot programs to further support digital media projects, one of which has a budget of $360 K to establish funding partnerships with incubators or accelerators across Canada. More details about this program will be announced once they become available.
