Top 15 Innovators

For the last decade we have been showcasing and recognizing the Canadian Top 15 most innovative, high growth Scaleup technology companies across the country. Founders are invited to participate in our recognition program, showcased at the event and placed into interactive networking opportunities, being introduced to some top influencers in North America to help them with international growth.

Now in our 10th year we have invested $2M in this program, seen 17 of our companies acquired and over $200M in investment raised by our companies. Founders can be nominated by our Alumni, or apply through our website.

There is no fee for the 15 companies to join us once approved. APPLY TODAY
