This week we had a pleasure to meet Victoria Lennox, the Co-Founder & CEO of Startup Canada. We are grateful to the Office of the Embassy of Canada for this possibility to meet Victoria.
Startup Canada promotes and supports the success and growth of Canada’s 2.3 million entrepreneurs with the mandate to foster economic growth, competitiveness, and prosperity through entrepreneurship. Startup Canada launched in 2012 in response to the Action Canada Task Force on High Growth Entrepreneurship call for an “independent organization to serve as the centerpiece for a national strategy to lay the foundations for entrepreneurial excellence in Canada.
Since launching, Startup Canada’s programming has directly supported more than 200.000 entrepreneurs and 50 grassroots Startup Community organizations. Working with over 750 ecosystem partners, including accelerators, incubators, research parks, educational institutions, economic development agencies, associations, and government programs, Startup Canada served entrepreneurs from all backgrounds, industries, and stages of development, with a network reflective of Canada’s diverse population.
We are looking forward to sharing successful practices among each other in the future.
