Canada-Chicago Mentoring Program (C2MP),
A Canada Technology Accelerator Pilot in 2020
February 6, 2020, Chicago, Illinois
- Are you a Canadian innovator and entrepreneur in life sciences/healthcare?
- Do you have a product or technology you would like to showcase?
- Are you seeking mentoring and guidance to advance your innovation?
If you answered “Yes!” to any of these questions, then you are encouraged to submit your application to the 2020 mentoring program in Chicago – No registration fee.
The C2MP has been renewed for the 6th year and is a Canada Technology Accelerator pilot for 2020. Funding is available for six Canadian start-ups for this program which offers an opportunity for selected Canadian life sciences/medical devices/digital health to obtain STRATEGIC GUIDANCE from Chicago-based experts with a global experience. Those mentors are members of Point B (formerly Chicago Innovation Mentors) at MATTER, the life sciences incubator/accelerator/ecosystem nexus in downtown Chicago.
As in previous years, the C2MP is a customized program for each of the selected companies. Each company will be matched with a team of 3 to 5 mentors over a period of 6 months. The selected companies are in charge of communicating to the mentors of the mentoring they need; they prepare the agendas for their meetings with the business development topics they want addressed.
