Are you a Canadian firm specializing in advanced manufacturing such as robotics and sensors in the aerospace, defence and ocean technology sectors? If so, you might want to take advantage of a new opportunity in Boston.

The Consulate General of Canada in Boston and the Canadian Entrepreneurs of New England (CENE) are currently accepting applications from Canadian companies for their “48Hrs in the Hub” program. The mentoring program is a two-day event in Boston which is  a hub for  life sciences, ICT (including Green and health IT), advanced manufacturing and emerging food product companies. The event is also an opportunity for Canadian companies to gain visibility in the local Boston business and investment community.

Companies are selected based on their initial traction in the market, differentiated technology, and potential to scale the business.

The event is put on in conjunction with the Consulate General of Canada in Boston. Twice a year, 20 of Canada’s most promising start-ups head to Boston/Cambridge for two days of mentorship, workshops, investor meetings, strategic partner visits and networking.  

Applications for the next event must be submitted by August 28. For more details on event, visit the Canadian Entrepreneurs of New England website.
