Yes! We can handhold global tech founders as well as entrepreneurs from more traditional sectors (with innovative business concepts) set up their business in Canada through the SUV program.

We support founders in pitching their business to these organizations, in building their product and scaling their company through our wide range of services.
We support founders in developing their business idea, writing their business plan, carrying out market research and building their business strategy. We connect them to the designated organizations and help them in their pitches and submissions. We also connect you to our network of incubators and accelerators that cater to various stages of company size and revenues, investor groups and technology partners.
