Although you may begin in Canada the success and sustainability of your company will depend on growing beyond our border to expand your customer base. Addressing an international audience offers incredible opportunity to build a strong profitable company.

The Canadian Digital Media Network is focused on providing programs and services that connect you to those resources. Our network of 25 incubator facilities across Canada and around the world enable technology companies immediate access to facilities, mentors, funders, industry partners, and services that answer your questions.  We connect technology companies in the ICT and mobile space to specialized programs that help you succeed.
The CDMN OutBound Soft-Landing program offers qualified mature start-ups and small companies access to a $4000 grant coving flights and accommodations as well as any required desk space with an international incubator. The CDMN Soft-Landing program is only offered through our member Hubs such as WEtech Alliance.

Canadian Digital Media Network
The Canadian Digital Media Network is an independent, not-for-profit national network of business acceleration centres that spans across Canada. Each business accelerator or ‘node’ enables support to start-ups and SMEs offering access to resources driving speed to market.
The CDMN enables national collaboration of business acceleration centres thereby offering the expert resources across Canada to start-ups and SMEs anywhere, anytime. We enable connection to resources that accelerate commercialization on the national and international stage.
Nationally we offer immediate connections, through our partner nodes, which gain access to business experts, industry partners, research, government, and academia. Here we enable business to find immediate answers to questions that tend to slow insertion into the market and subsequently delay revenue generation. Whether a new technology based start-up or a small company in business for years, rapid market insertion requires access to the right resources at the right time.
Internationally we offer focused exposure into economies-of-interest through our global nodes. The CDMN Soft-Landing program offers funding and international site support to mature start-ups and SMEs. Having access to commercialization resources and international support drives speed to market for Canada’s start-ups and SMEs. For more information on CDMN, please visit www.cdmn.ca.
