Financing and Mentoring Sessions – Day 3

Get your technology to market

For the first time at CPES, we are adding a third day of optional programming that runs from 8 a.m. to noon. This includes our Financing and Mentoring Sessions.

Financing Session
9:00 – 10:00 am

This session is of interest to all companies including pre-revenue and revenue generating small to medium size enterprises (SMEs) that are looking for funding for their R&D and market and company expansion programs.

This will be an hour-long financing round table. A panel of financiers and representatives from government support programs will provide information on their programs and how to access them. We expect organizations like the BDC, NRC IRAP, SDTC that provide different types of financing for companies to be present.

This session is open for all companies to participate.

Networking Session
10:00 – 10:30 am

A chance for companies, financiers, and government representatives to informally mingle.

Mentoring Session
10:30-noon

These sessions are targeted at pre-revenue companies with a product idea and business plan in search of seed financing or first-round venture capital funding.

This is a first come, first served opportunity, open to the first 10 companies that register. You must be a CPEIA Member company to take part.

Companies can pitch their businesses to qualified investor panel from funding organizations and strategic partners.

  1. The panel will provide the first line of feedback to participating companies.
  2. As the next step, participating startups will be matched to industry mentors who can assist their continued evolution through quarterly mentoring sessions for up to one year or four meetings.
  3. As an added value, CPES Bronze Sponsor Keystep Growth & Finance will provide a complimentary business plan review to each participating company, a $2,000 value.
