Canadian Innovation Commercialization Program launches

By Samantha Garner | October 8, 2010

At GoForth Institute, we love innovation in small business. That’s why we were excited to learn about the Government of Canada’s new program – the Canadian Innovation Commercialization Program (CICP). This $40 million program helps Canadian entrepreneurs test their innovative product or service within the government before going to market. As one of the largest buyers in Canada, the government is a great proving ground for an innovative product or service.

The CICP helps entrepreneurs operating in four key areas: environment; safety and security; health; and enabling technologies.

Here are the services the CICP offers to Canadian entrepreneurs:

  • Helping showcase their innovation to potential government buyers at events across Canada;
  • Enabling a procurement process for awarding government contracts;
  • Testing and providing feedback on their products or services before going to market; and
  • Providing education on how to do business with the federal government.

Are you a Canadian entrepreneur with an innovative new product or service? Visit the CICP’s website to find out how they can help!
