The Lazaridis Institute Scale-Up Tour will make a stop in Halifax on Tuesday, featuring a webinar on “blitzscaling” with Chris Yeh.

The Kitchener, Ont.-based Lazaridis Institute offers programs that help Canadian companies scale more quickly through a several-month accelerator. Spring Loaded Technologies and QRA Corp., both of the Halifax area, have both attended the accelerator. (Applications for the accelerator’s third cohort are open until July 27 and can be found here.)

The Institute, named for BlackBerry Co-Founder Mike Lazaridis, is now undertaking a tour across Canada to meet startups and discuss Canadian innovation and blitzscaling.

“On this tour, we invite you to come hear about our recent research findings on the growth of Canadian technology companies and the various ways we can work together when it comes to entrepreneurship, innovation and technology,” said a note from the organizers.

Pioneered by LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman, blitzscaling is a business strategy in which founders apply speed in phases, so each phase of development is attacked with urgency. Yeh, a General Partner at Wasabi Ventures Global, worked with Hoffman in co-writing the book The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age.

The Lazaridis session will be held at the Innovacorp Enterprise Centre on Summer Street at 5 pm Tuesday. You can register here.
