Our partners are guided by the same principles of trust, clarity and openness as we are.

Our shared vision and passion have bought us together to work towards a common goal – to help new businesses grow. Some of the prestigious partners we are working with are listed below.

21inc represents the future of leadership. They are an action tank committed to building a community of high performing emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in Atlantic Canada.
Propel ICT is Atlantic Canada’s startup accelerator. We are a private sector-led, not for profit initiative that helps new and emerging companies in all parts of Atlantic Canada take ideas to market and create successful businesses.
NBIF provides venture capital and research funding to startups in New Brunswick. However, unlike other financial institutions, instead of lending, they make investments in a company’s equity. Instead of making research grants, the funding they provide attaches certain rights to the intellectual property developed so they can help commercialize it. The profit goes right back into NBIF for future fundings.
The Pond-Deshpande Centre is established to act as a catalyst to advance innovation and entrepreneurship in New Brunswick by facilitating collaboration among entrepreneurs, young companies, students, faculty and alumni. The PDC will work with NB’s already established innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem to create mentorship opportunities for aspiring innovators that will provide them with a sound foundation in technical and social entrepreneurship, and give them the opportunity to engage in the experience and explore their possibilities for success. The PDC will also serve as a resource for new entrepreneurs to translate their ideas into companies, products or services.
The University of New Brunswick’s Dr. J. Herbert Smith Centre for Technology Management & Entrepreneurship provides students with the practical skills they need to set apart from the crowd. In their diploma program – the only one of its kind in Atlantic Canada – students will learn essential business management, entrepreneurship and communications skills geared specifically to the technology industry.
The G. Wallace F. McCain Institute at the University of New Brunswick helps entrepreneurs develop the understanding, tools and relationships needed to grow their businesses, creating new opportunities for economic and social progress across New Brunswick.
The Upside Foundation is an exciting venture that lets Canadian startups give back to our society. Supported by startups, VCs and associations, the process is simple: Donate options, not cash and when you have that huge exit, those options convert into cash for Canadian charities.
Innovacorp is a Nova Scotia crown corporation managing an early-stage venture capital fund to promote the development of technology products and services for emerging entrepreneurs in the life sciences and IT industry.
Shad Valley is a four week summer enrichment program. Students spend a month living in residence at one of our host university campuses across Canada. The program is offered to students currently completing grade 10, 11 or 12, Quebec secondaire IV, V or CEGEP I, or the international equivalent.
We believe in the power of technology to unlock our region’s prosperity and build a strong, lasting economy for the East Coast of Canada. We are local technology business leaders who know that embracing technology in our economy, education system and government is the key to our future.
