Canada is a perfect landing pad for many businesses around the world who are looking to expand their businesses to North America and, with its Start-Up Visa Program, Canada supports launching innovative, globally-scalable business ideas from foreign innovators and entrepreneurs.
In this month’s webinar, we will dive deep into another Start-Up Visa incubator program to let applicants – as well as the professionals who serve them – know more about the available options. Since Joorney Business Plans Canada is not an immigration consultant, lawyer, or advisor, we are delighted to bring in our special guest to dive deep into the program and explain the steps involved in the process.
We’ve teamed up with Launch Academy, a designated organization of the Start-Up Visa Program. Join us as we sit down with Ray Walia, Co-Founder & CEO at Launch Academy, as we aim to answer the most pressing questions about the Start-Up Visa process, what it takes to obtain the letter of support, and how Launch Academy supports promising technology businesses in their development and growth.
