WHO SHOULD APPLY?
This program is designed for early stage companies in Western Canada. An early-stage company usually has some aspects of their company that would be considered incomplete, such as the management team not fully filled out, the product still in the testing phase or patents filed for but not received.
Companies considered for this program have generally gone beyond the ‘ideas sketched on the back of a napkin’ stage and have some initial groundwork and traction, but are needing guidance to get their company full formed and ready to be funded. If that’s you, and you are excited about moving forward and learning with some of Canada’s top entrepreneurs and experts, then we want to hear from you
We read every application in order to make the best decision possible. Once your application has been completed, and if your company meets our baselines, you will be contacted for an in-person interview. During the in-person interview we will be looking to make the best decision possible for your company and Foresight, based on your goals and our ability to add value.
Not all applicants will be selected for follow up but all applicants will be notified of Foresight’s decision, one way or the other. Intakes happen on a monthly basis, sometimes more frequently depending on demand. Time is of the essence with your startup and we are not here to delay any progress.
