We're proud members of the Canadian Digital Media Network (CDMN). In addition to connecting with our peers across accelerators and incubators across the country, CDMN provides valuable programming for tech companies to propel their growth and connect them with founders around the world.
The Get There program is a unique opportunity that offers early-stage, high-growth high-potential Canadian tech startups a chance to demystify an international market. The program is designed to amplify the founder’s network and provide tips and tricks to make future visits easier and more cost effective. Each company receives pre-trip coaching before spending one week in market and financial support to offset some of the costs of the trip.
We sat down to chat with Laurie Maier, Manager Network Programs - CDMN, to talk about how early is too early to explore a new market (hint: it’s probably earlier than you think) and how to get the most out of a Get There trip.
