An ecosystem built on value-driven partnerships.

The power of partnerships

The world is changing and competing in today’s environment requires innovative thinking, partnering with leading tech companies and top talent around the world.

We work with partners to create programs to address their strategic priorities that are impactful, flexible and customized across 4 key pillars, while staying true to our “founder first” values.

Our Professionals-in-Residence

The Professionals-in-Residence or PiR program is created for organizations that are looking to support and grow their services alongside top tech startups in Canada. The program allows professionals to offer 1:1 advisory services to our portfolio companies, network with founders and like-minded professionals and be an active member of the most sought-after tech community in Canada.
