To help Indian Startups SACC India Signs MoU With Toronto Business Development Centre

To help start-up founders from the SACC community to scale in the North American market via Canada, Startup Accelerator Chamber of Commerce (SACC) India has signed an MoU with Toronto Business Development Centre (TBDC).

SACC was set up in 2014 as a non-profit entity to promote entrepreneurship and stimulate start-up friendly eco-system in the Chandigarh, Haryana and Punjab region.

Mr Manipal Dhariwal, President SACC said, “The MoU between SACC and TBDC is going to be a powerful way for helping early to growth-stage founders from the SACC network to scale in the North American market, by giving them access to the mentors and advisors from TBDC network who can guide them through their scaleup journey in Canada and North America. Our strong association with TBDC will ensure we provide business and investor connections to start-ups and help them enrol for the Start-up Visa (SUV) program.”

SACC is known for being one of the few incubators in North India that give 360-degree support to their portfolio of start-ups and runs more than eight incubation centres across Punjab and Haryana. Through its vibrant and highly networked community of established Entrepreneurs, mentors, Professionals and Students, SACC has a strong footprint in Punjab and Haryana.

TBDC is a business incubator since 1990 with a mandate to nurture the growth of new and emerging businesses by providing access to physical facilities, advisory support and tools appropriate to the venture’s stage of development.

Neha Jain, Director APAC, TBDC said, “At TBDC we are growing the next wave of start-ups in Canada by bringing high potential founders from around the world. We know how challenging scaling up business across borders can be, so TBDC will help screen and interview companies using our established due diligence process for Startup Visa and Soft-Landing Program. We will share resources to provide business advisory (mentors) and investment networks to the start-ups that qualify under Startup Visa and Soft-Landing Program. Together, we will also provide a six-month incubation program to the qualifier companies.”
