I have spent 2 years traveling to Canada to understand the market, build network and get business. I spent a lot of money, time and energy doing this. I wish I could join Startup Bridge Canada earlier, because I could get most of it in a few months at a fraction of cost. I highly recommend this program to founders seeking to enter North American markets.
SBC was instrumental in helping Scribble Data land softly in Canada, even in these travel-restricted times. We incorporated our subsidiary, Scribble Data Inc through KNAV, as well as met folks that will open GTM channels for us, including Capgemini and a clutch of investors.
Startup bridge Canada was a very practically thought out program plan & facilitated discussions with relevant stakeholders in the region. We are exploring the north american region and this program helped us get a comprehensive understanding of soft landing in Canada. We now have our first enterprise customer in the region and a clear gtm plan.
Startup Bridge Canada is a fantastic platform for any startup who is looking at Canada as a base to cater to the North American market. Unlike most programs, this program is very well curated, practical, truly well-rounded with excellent mentors. During the program, we were able to gain real on-the-ground clarity on the startup ecosystem, lawyers, accelerators, and migration.
Our biggest takeaway from the program is a well-drawn-up Canada market entry plan and we have also been able to onboard mentors/ partners, willing to work with us on implementing the plan. I can't thank the SBC team enough as we clearly see ourselves setting up base in the coming 6 months.
SBC was a fantastic experience in getting to know the lay of the land for startups exploring North America, especially Canada. We're glad to be working with partners from the network as we look to take.
Learned a lot about solar market in Canada and connected with multiple mentors for office hours. Gave invaluable advice. Also learned how Canadian government policies can benefit companies looking to enter and work in Canada. Brilliant.
I would like to thank team SBC for the wonderful support and informative sessions on expanding business in Canada. The program was a wonderful gateway to meet seasoned entrepreneurs, advisors and mentors, and it helped us get connected to a few charismatic mentors along our journey.
