Creative Destruction Lab-Atlantic has revealed the 11 companies that have graduated from its 2018-19 cohort.
Operating out of Dalhousie University, the CDL-Atlantic just finished its second cohort, which began last autumn with just over two dozen companies being mentored by some of the region’s top business leaders. The organization never reveals its participants until they graduate as the numbers dwindle as the cohort progresses.
The CDL began a few years ago at University of Toronto and now offers programing in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, Halifax, New York and Oxford, England.
Here is a complete list of the most recent CDL-Atlantic graduates (and links to Entrevestor articles on those we’ve covered recently):
