Foresight Growth: Resources and Guidance to Increase Sales and Scale
If you are a Canadian growth-oriented cleantech, robotics, advanced materials or hardware company, we’ll help you increase your access to financing, grow your talent pool, and break in to international markets. Our experienced Foresight Growth Executives in Residence (EIRs) and mentors will guide you in expanding your sales and marketing capabilities and building out your supply chains. We will also connect companies with international cleantech challenges through the Foresight Growth Challenge DialogueTM program.
This program is supported in part by Western Economic Diversification Canada.
