Canada’s Tech Network Soft Landing program helps qualified, mature Canadian technology startups and scale-ups to build revenue and secure investment in global markets by helping to cover their costs. Each company receives up to $4,000 CAD to offset expenses such as travel, accommodations and temporary office space.
Canada’s Tech Network support has helped past Soft Landing participants to create more than 325 jobs, generate $97 million in net new revenue and raise more than $113 million in investment.
