Learn The Best Practices to Commercialize Deep Tech in Canada: With BDC Deep Tech Fund

Tuesday February 8th 2022 

Just like the advent of the silicon chip in 1961, the world is on the precipice of major breakthroughs in disruptive technologies from Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Technologies, to Opto-Electronics and Advanced Materials. As countries across the world are investing in the next wave of startups, it is critical for Canada to catch and ride this wave to ensure the creation and growth of the next generation of Deep Tech companies.


From developing early commercial Deep Tech products, to protecting your intellectual property, to positioning your company for venture capital success, experienced leaders Todd Finch, Dan Adamson, and Lally Rementilla shared what works and what doesn’t.

Small business and innovation – the engine for Canada’s economic recovery.   

October 29th, 2020

We know that economies around the world – including Canada’s – have taken a hit as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  For small business, the economic downturn has been and continues to be a huge challenge. For our country to recover, we need our small business sector to not only survive but to thrive and grow.  Companies that can innovate and access top talent will recover stronger and faster than companies that can’t. 


How can our ecosystem best support our companies who are innovating in a way that makes sense and gets Canada back to our A-game?  What role do different actors in the system need to play across the innovation spectrum – from fundamental research through applied research to commercialization?  This panel, with Mitacs and small businesses will explore what some of the pain points are for companies working to innovate in trying times, how to move ahead with R&D to drive your company forward, and the increasingly important role that partnership and collaboration will play.
