Speakers

Kosta Panagoulias, Co-Founder at Web4Realty

In six years, Web4Realty has changed their marketing strategy dozens of times. It's important to use efficient technology to your benefit, be proactive with your plan, think big, and always be scalable.

Nick Kuryluk, Chief Executive Officer at ColdBlock Technologies Inc

Over the last two years, ColdBlock Technologies transitioned from Research and Development to Commercial Operations. In this journey, they implemented a plan to address the pre-commercialization gap through the Build In Canada Innovation Program (BCIP). They also engaged CEMI, RIC\BioLINC, NSERC, IRAP, OCE and MaRS to address much needed funding for ongoing research and development, labor costs, increased operational expenses and securing talent.

Dr. Ivan Zak, Founder and CEO of Smart Flow

To "cross the chasm" you have to find the customers with the biggest pain point and do anything that will solve it. Then gain reputation in solving that pain point and convert them into evangelists. In order to scale globally, SmartFlow had to listen to the market and follow where customers wanted to see us and then adapt using tools that allow global management.

Naheed Kurji, President and CEO of Cyclica


Since inception, Cyclica has raised over $4.2M in equity capital and added an additional $600K in non-dilutive capital, including $2.4M in a Series A1 round. During that period, the company has developed, validated, patented and published it's first-in-class core technology, Ligand Express, and has now shifted to full commercialization and an anticipated launch of their web-based SaaS in the coming weeks.
