In Canada we believe in innovation and building our economy around it. Innovation starts with people, talented, and hardworking like yourself. That’s why our government has created a special immigration program, the Start-up Visa Program for encouraging entrepreneurs to innovate and live permanently in Canada.
Based on growth, performance, funding, and exit values, Canada is ranked among the best startup ecosystem in the world. In fact, outside of Silicon Valley, Waterloo has the highest startup density of any area in the world. And with a combination of economic freedom, low startup costs, government funding, accessible business tools, and plenty of talent, Canada is one of the best places to launch and/or grow your start-up. After all, we are the Silicon Valley of the North!
To qualify, your start-up must first obtain a Letter of Support from a Designated Organization, and then up to 5 shareholders of your business can apply for Permanent Residency with their families.
In Canada we know what’s at stake with innovation, so unlike many other countries, we care about your good intentions and hard work, not the mechanical success of your start-up.
We have an exclusive portfolio of start-ups in different fields, and TRL stages that are actively looking for qualified co-founders, executives, and investors.
If you believe you got what it takes to be an entrepreneur in the world of high-risk high-reward businesses, or you are eager to maximize your return on promising start-ups, or wish to bring your years of knowledge and experience to a different world, get in touch today!
