We help Canadian technology companies reach their next level of growth through world-class support in the Scale-Up Program, through front-line training in the Tech Sales Apprenticeship initiative, and through a global network of business and technology experts who provide mentorship, connections, and valuable experience. The Institute conducts leading-edge research in innovation, management and disruption in the technology ecosystem. And, as part of the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University, we are creating direct links between international research, best practices in global scaling, and curriculum to prepare the next generation of business leaders to face tomorrow’s challenges in the tech industry.
