Ottawa, Canada, July 4, 2013 - CATA, Canada’s largest technology association, announces a strategic partnership with AcceleratorU, Canada’s first online Innovation & Venture Exchange University.
Canada is no longer one of the top 10 innovation countries due to our declining educational funding, reduced # of patents being filed, scarcity of investment capital to fuel emerging growth, reduced numbers of companies going public and sustaining growth globally, and declining expertise in innovation execution.
In Canada, there is no more ground to lose anymore. We are in a crisis and we cannot fall anymore in global innovation rankings, says John Reid, CEO of CATA. To help close the innovation gap we must think outside the box. The current practices and processes for agile learning are not working anymore.
CATA: The largest high-tech association in Canada, CATAAlliance matches businesses with opportunities across almost every sector, so that we can all do business together. Reaching out from Canada, CATAAlliance members are connected with investment and partnership opportunities with the major global companies. As 80% are exporters, CATA’s members are the arrow-head for global growth.
