If your growth strategy includes expansion to the United States or Asia then the Canadian Technology Accelerators (CTA) could be your launch pad. This non-equity program gives participating companies access to bespoke business connections, executive coaching from industry experts, a dedicated trade commissioner, focused workshops, networking activities, and a centrally located co-working space.
CTA programs connect and immerse Canadian technology and health companies in booming global tech hubs. Each CTA tailors its programming to the unique opportunities available in their ecosystem.
CTAs in the U.S. and Singapore will be accepting applications until January 17, 2020. Applications for Tokyo, Hong Kong and Taipei will be accepted throughout the year.
Are you ready for the CTA?
The CTA is a competitive program for innovative high-growth and high-potential companies. Ideal candidates can demonstrate:
- Traction in the Marketplace: You have at least a minimum viable product (MVP), along with quantifiable evidence of maturity (investment, revenue or number of users).
- Product Market Fit: You can define your target audience, articulate the problem you solve, and demonstrate differentiation of your product/service.
- Strong Executive Management Team: You can commit to send at least one senior member (C-level or Founder) to take part in the program and have the financial resources to cover in-market costs.
- Potential to Scale: You have a well thought out go-to-market plan for the CTA location along with KPIs to match.
