[ PROGRAM OVERVIEW ]
We bring local and global ideas to market in Canada. We offer high potential and aspiring entrepreneurs the mentorship, networking, and tools necessary to start an innovative business in Canada.
We work locally by offering Startup incubation and acceleration opportunity to Canadians and communities, as well as internationally by offering high potential entrepreneurs the opportunity to startup in Canada through our designation as a Canada Startup Visa business incubator.
We are key players in our local ecosystem and bolster Canadian innovation and technology. We support cutting edge research and product development, and use this leading work to assist our entrepreneurs in building high potential innovative businesses that can scale both domestically and internationally.
Our Canadian incubator is located in the heart of the diverse and green city of Vancouver, British Columbia. Unrivaled by any other city, the combination of lifestyle, well-being, leading innovation and technology, and cultural diversity makes Vancouver an attractive place to start up. Our remote locations include Whistler, BC and varying other communities in British Columbia, Canada.
Using our proven and powerful methodology, network, market insight and business expertise, we guide entrepreneurs on a path to successfully start a business in Canada.
Become the Best
We educate and empower founders to build market offers and business models that empower their ideas to become the best in the world. We guide them through the rigours of Lean StartUp and Horizon Methodology, and cycle through the validated learning process of build-measure-learn.
Connect with the Best
We select entrepreneurs from around the world with the best innovative and scalable concepts to startup in Canada, with international reach. We are skilled at assisting entrepreneurs in de-risking their projects, increasing their speed to market, and enhancing the overall prosperity of Canadian ecosystem they are entering.
We build startups that define and aggressively pursue revenue goals on this equation: My startup will sell $X of Y product to customers A, B, C in N number of countries in M number of months.
