We are asking Canadian business founders/leaders to participate in this Forum/study to start a real conversation around what you want/need to improve/change, so that your company can really innovate & scale & grow globally.

With the findings and recommendations from this forum, we will be telling  the many stakeholders across Canada (universities, governments, investors, etc.), what we need and how we can raise Canadian business performance together!
