Toronto, ON – In an effort to provide an ecosystem to support long-term success and sustainability for cyber security innovation in Canada, CATA Cyber has secured a working agreement with the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), Toronto Chapter to help connect Canadian cyber security innovators with the Canadian Capital Markets.


One of our key mandate items has been economic prosperity for Canada through the development of the cyber security industry in Canada” says Katherine Thompson, Chair of CATA’s Cyber Council. “The partnership with ACG Toronto allows us the opportunity to connect innovators both at a start-up and scale up stage with those within the Canadian Capital Markets who can help them achieve their goals” adds Thompson.

ACG is a global community for middle market M&A and Private Equity organizations and business leaders focused on driving growth. Founded in 1954, ACG has 58 chapters and 14,500+ members worldwide. Chapters in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia bring dealmakers together to help them achieve their business and professional goals.   Mike Fenton, Executive Director for ACG Toronto offered, “The mid-market investment sector represents a significant number of businesses whose activity is a key stimulant for the Canadian economy. Ensuring that our members are both educated and engaged in the discussion related to cyber security innovation, is a primary reason that we are partnering with CATA Cyber”.

At present, the Associations are exploring joint initiatives to provide companies, organizations and individuals with the opportunity to network, learn and drive opportunities for business and industry growth on both sides of the border.
