The Scale-Up Hub: Cambridge project has extended the deadline for applications for its next cohort – which will be a virtual program – until Friday.

The program, which helps scaling companies find clients in the New England market, is looking for about a half-dozen Atlantic Canadian companies to participate. You can find application forms here.

The program usually offers companies a base in Cambridge, Mass. for a year, but it will now be held online due to the pandemic.

“It’s a challenging time and not easy to make crucial connections to customers because of travel restrictions,” said Lisa Dobson, Nova Scotia Business Inc.'s Sector Lead for ITC. “Scale-Up Hub: Cambridge has pivoted and we are exploring unique ways to connect our companies to customers in the New England market.”
