Toronto, ON (PRWEB) November 21, 2016
Toronto-based employee communications solution, PostBeyond, has been selected for three programs geared toward helping Canadian companies scale globally. The company will be participating in the Lazaridis Institute's Scale-Up Program, the Canadian Technology Accelerator in the UK program, and 48 Hours in the Alley.
“We are honoured to be accepted into such distinguished programs,” said Ivan Tsarynny, co-founder and CEO, PostBeyond. “Selection for programs like Scale-Up, CTA@UK, and 48 Hours in the Alley mark a significant achievement for myself and the PostBeyond team, and we’re looking forward to receiving mentorship from esteemed business leaders.”
The Lazaridis Institute for the Management of Technology Enterprises was created to support growth-oriented Canadian technology companies. Developed through investments by Mike Lazaridis and the Government of Ontario, the Lazaridis Institute helps technology firms to scale rapidly into globally competitive enterprises.
“PostBeyond has many of the key qualities we were looking for when selecting our final 10 companies for the Scale-Up Program,” said Carlo Chiarello, CEO of The Lazaridis Institute. “They have the ambition and work ethic to be a great leader in the Canadian tech ecosystem, and they’re showing continuous growth in their revenue and employee numbers. We have no doubt they will succeed in the program and reach even greater milestones in their growth trajectory.”
The CTA program, led by the High Commission of Canada in the UK, supports Canadian companies looking to expand into the UK and wider European market.
The CTA program provides high-growth enterprises access to resources, including mentorship from industry leaders and CTA partners, as well as enhanced support from the Government of Canada’s Trade Commissioner Service. Acceptance into this program will enable PostBeyond to establish operations on the ground in the UK, allowing wider access to both customers and partners.
“The Canadian Technology Accelerator is a program dedicated to providing expansion opportunities for high-growth, market ready Canadian companies,” said High Commissioner Janice Charette. “PostBeyond has demonstrated that they have the product and the skills necessary to take part in this exciting program and we look forward to seeing them flourish in London’s booming technology and commerce hub.”
48 Hours in the Alley
Hosted by the Consulate General of Canada in New York, the 48 Hours in the Alley program provides high-growth Canadian companies a chance to become fully immersed in the New York City technology ecosystem and meet with key contacts. The program includes two days of workshops, panel discussions, a pitch practice and a mini “Shark Tank” event, which allows companies to pitch to a panel of New York VCs and industry leaders.
With an existing customer base in the United States, PostBeyond anticipates that 48 Hours in the Alley will assist with expansion opportunities in the Eastern US market.
