The platform is intended to make it easier for accelerators to identify startups that meet their program parameters, and to provide provincial and federal governments with requisite detailed metrics.
The platform will capture comprehensive, standardized data, facilitating application, selection and reporting processes for a wide variety of programs, and will provide a direct feedback loop to its users over a secure network.
Users will have the option to share private data in order to gain visibility with potential sources of support and investment with no added cost in time or effort.
