SBC is a 6-Week Pre-Market Entry Startup Program allowing 50 hi-potential growth stage India headquartered startups to access and understand Canada, and build out their North American strategy. Our goal is to identify and select B2B software / enterprise tech / deep tech startups that have either raised institutional funding or the ones that have stable revenues and are geared for international expansion - looking to set up a base in North America.
We aim to open up access to a network of mentors, business leaders, accelerators, founders, investors, corporates and economic development agencies. Over the duration of 6-weeks, selected startups will be engaged in 8 hours of cumulative LIVE interactions per week; thereby totalling ~50 hours of programming.
