The Canadian Technology Accelerator Initiative (CTA) helps high-potential, high-growth Canadian technology SMEs seeking to expand to the U.S through a 5 month program of workshops, events, mentorship and business introductions. More information is available here.
The Trade Commissioner Service developed the CTA initiative in response to the need for Canada’s high potential, small technology companies to access global business opportunities. In four years of programming, 467 companies have participated in the CTA.
CTAs presently operate in 6 cities, covering 3 sectors: life sciences, cleantech and digital technologies (ICT).
The CTA targets different sectors and coordinates events in cities where those sectors are most prominent.
