America’s largest employers are sounding the alarm on immigration rules. Canada’s successful startup visa program shows us why
“At Launch Academy, a Vancouver-based tech startup accelerator, innovative foreign entrepreneurs grow into success stories in the Canadian market. Since 2017, we’ve helped 287 foreign entrepreneurs from over 38 countries navigate Canada’s startup visa program.”
Launch Academy’s startup visa program gives entrepreneurs permanent residency in Canada
“Launch Academy and its advisers will vet applicants and recommend them to the Canadian government for the visa and permanent residency process.
Because of this, it’s not just an option for startups but also for founders of more mature companies that want to put their roots down in North America.”
7 of North America’s top startup incubators and accelerators are in Canada
“The numbers are in.
And it looks like Canada is ranking high among the top North American startup incubators and accelerators.
These companies exist to support the growth and development of startup companies, through various types of training, office spaces, tools and technology, connections & mentorship.”
