About the Lazaridis Institute Scale-Up Program

Companies in the Scale-Up Program expand and refine their unique roadmaps for growth while base-lining core areas needed for their next round of financing. They do this by working directly with experts who’ve had the experience of growing a company—or several companies—to global scale. Each company in the program is also carefully matched with a mentor chosen for their expertise in the company’s industry and with the company’s specific challenges. In our program, CEOs/founders of promising Canadian tech firms don’t spend six months planning their growth journeys—with all the support they receive, they can focus on making that growth happen.
