Foreign Trade Office in Toronto in cooperation with the Polish Investment and Trade Agency SA, Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Toronto, Trade and Investment Office of the Czech Republic, Consulate General of the Czech Republic and Consulate General of Hungary organized series of events promoting startups from the Visegrad Four (V4).

The events took place on April 30 - May 5 in Toronto and consisted of fairs, conferences and participation in Discovery 2018, as well as numerous meetings with legal and business advisory organizations and visits to Canadian innovation centers.

 

Three Polish startups took part in the events:

ProperGate – Innovative technologies and solutions in the real estate and construction industry;

KF Niccolum – A producer of cosmetics that protects against nickel allergy.

 

In addition to attending one of the largest Canadian conferences combining innovative entrepreneurs with companies and governmental and self-governmental administration - OCE Discovery, Polish startups took part in a solemn party / banquet with representatives of the Ontario government, diplomatic corps, chambers of commerce in Toronto and organizations supporting the development of startups in Canada, as well as "Doing Business in Canada" meeting with the law firm Aird Berlis and a seminar on available initiatives and start-up visas at the Toronto Global Business Advisors headquarters.

The event also included visits to innovation centers such as Toronto Waterloo Corridor, Communitech, Google office (Waterloo) and DMZ (Ryerson University) where Polish startups representatives had the opportunity to present their solutions, consult mentors and establish contacts with government officials, academics, students and investors.

Polish entrepreneurs pointed out the attractive features of the Canadian market - an economy willingly benefiting from innovation, a more profitable launch of production, ongoing construction boom, easier trade exchange due to CETA agreement.
