Creating global advantage for Canadian companies

Does your company have an AI-powered platform opportunity with the potential to become a global category leader? Can you assemble a team of strategic partners committed to building the ecosystem needed to support product leadership on the world stage? Can we translate that into rapidly growing, new product revenues?

Our Horizon AI – Global Advantage stream includes consortium development projects that start with co-investments of $250K to help pull the consortium together, focus opportunities and develop a competitive strategy for customer acquisition and global success. If successful, another $1M will seed the first wave of consortium projects. Then, we’ll work with you to see how we can use that portfolio to continue the investment momentum, with an ultimate goal of reaching $100M+ in support of a flagship, product leadership opportunity in AI.

Start with an Expression of Interest. You can find the submission link here: Global Advantage – Call for Projects. Once we receive your EOI, you’ll hear back from us in 1 to 2 weeks. You want to build a world-leading AI-powered platform. We can help. Let’s get started!
