Top 15 Innovators

For the last decade we have been showcasing and recognizing the Top 15 most innovative, high growth technology companies from any vertical from across the country. These founders are invited to participate in our program, showcased at the event and placed into interactive networking programs, being introduced to some top influencers in North America to help them grow internationally.

Now in our 10th year we have invested $2M in this program, seen 17 of our companies acquired and over $170M 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

Criteria:

We search for the best scale-up companies with amazing founders and team members who will benefit from the program. Those who have already had a raise of at least $1M or are revenue generating are at the ideal stage, however the committee will take into account other factors, such as those who are growing exponentially fast and will most benefit from support in being taken to the next level and international expansion. Companies must be able to:

  • Clearly demonstrate product solves a problem/market need and is generally available
  • Show demonstrated traction with users & revenue and/or investment (commitment)

This is a highly competitive process with only 15 Founders invited each year to benefit from our recognition program, pre-scheduled 1:1 mentor meetings and showcased throughout the live event.
