  • Accessing intelligence on technology and markets
  • Identifying credible partners via the Trade Commissioner Service network
  • Accessing new markets through technology partnering
  • Leveraging investment to de-risk R&D projects that support the commercialization of Canadian technology
  • Helping to reduce market entry risk as well as the costs associated with technology adaptation, technology co-development and technology validation
