One of the roles of CATAAlliance is to organize advocacy Campaigns that will contribute to innovation leadership in Canada. We recently launched a Crowd Funding Campaign to make it easier for small investors to invest in early stage companies or start-ups.

Advocacy Campaigns draw on a pool of research, and communications resources as well as the expertise that resides among the thought leaders within the CATAAlliance business network.
