Our EiR startup program in numbers
I wanted to do something more realistic and closer to my background. As a student I always wanted to create a start-up but I couldn’t. I was looking for this kind of opportunity. The first time I heard about TandemLaunch I said: Yes, this is a place I can do that.
We welcome our entrepreneurs by cohorts of exceptional individuals from around the world.
Entrepreneurs-in-Residence will be able to use our lab space to build their prototypes
During this period, we will determine if you’ll be a good fit for the program. This period is spent training you in startup building basics and placing you temporarily with one of our existing ventures to give you an insight into what building a company at TandemLaunch looks like.
The goal of the Creation Phase is to prepare viable investment opportunities, including validation of the technology and its market viability, formation of the initial core team, establishment of an initial business plan and definition of the early financial structure for investment
You'll establish a complete team, formalize the product and technology, and secure third-party financing. It is during this phase that the majority of the $600,000 investment from TandemLaunch is unlocked.
If all the criteria are met, you will become an independent company. Third party angel and/or venture investors (often from the TandemLaunch network) generally finance the growth of the company at this stage.
To pursue my dream of establishing a high-tech startup, I moved from Europe to Montreal after my PhD defense. Being an entrepreneur, especially a technical woman is tough, but I cannot think of a better place than here to be one. A combination of true mentorship, business guidance and support while being surrounded by passionate and young entrepreneurs.
