The Scale-Up Hub: Cambridge project is organizing a series of information sessions to highlight the advantages of the program, which helps scaling tech companies grow in the Boston area.
Sessions are now scheduled for Halifax and Moncton next month, and will include past participants describing their experiences with the program. Tanya Bellefontaine, Business Development Manager for USA and Ontario for Northern Business Intelligence, will speak at the Halifax session and Leon DesRoches, CEO of Smartpods, will join the Moncton discussion.
Christine Carr, CEO and Founder of Launch Mechanic and the Manager of Scale-Up Hub: Cambridge, will provide details on the program and how it can help tech startups scale in Boston and into the broader U.S. market. She will provide an overview of the program and offer insights on how to make it in that competitive ecosystem.
Nova Scotia Business Inc. launched the program in 2018 as a vehicle to help scaling companies establish a base in Cambridge, MA., and generate sales. In 2019, the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency provided new funds to allow the Nova Scotia economic development agency to expand the program, offering it to scaling companies from around the region.
The program offers participants the following resources for a full year: working space in Cambridge; assistance with selling in the New England marketplace; and the services of an in-market business development team to help with sales strategy and market development.
