The Canadian Digital Media Network (CDMN) has selected 53 companies – in sectors from artificial intelligence and machine learning to internet of things (IoT) and smart cities – to join its Soft Landing program, a top-rated international market growth and export development program.
The CDMN Soft Landing program helps qualified, mature Canadian technology startups and scale-ups to build revenue and secure investment in global markets by helping to cover their costs. Each company receives up to $4,000 CAD to offset expenses such as travel, accommodations and temporary office space.
CDMN’s support has helped past Soft Landing participants to create more than 325 jobs, generate $97 million in net new revenue and raise more than $113 million in investment.
“The support provided by CDMN through the Soft Landing program was crucial to our success,” said former program participant Hugues Marceau, co-Founder and CEO of Autonom Inc. “Our inclusion in this program allowed the organization to attract customers in new markets in order to more quickly become cashflow positive on our entrepreneurial journey.”
