SOSA has announced its second year of partnership with the Canadian Technology Accelerator (CTA), a global initiative led by the Government of Canada’s Trade Commissioner Service, to launch the next CTA Cybersecurity, Privacy & Compliance Virtual Program in New York.
The partnership comes on the heels of 2020 CTA alumni Qohash securing eight million dollars in Series A funding after working closely with SOSA and the CTA program in 2020.
SOSA’s partnership with the CTA will allow seven Canadian cyber-startups to immerse themselves in New York’s tech cyber ecosystem and equip them with the tools needed to expand into the U.S. market.
The selection committee, composed of SOSA’s innovation team and representatives from the Canadian Consulate General in New York, NYU Tandon Data Future Lab, and venture capitalists, identified a diverse set of promising startups to participate in this year’s CTA cohort.
They include Byos, Crypto4, Global Intelligence, Kings Distributed Systems, MONDATA, PrivateAI and TrojanAI. The CTA Cybersecurity Virtual Program will be tailored to address the potential of each startup, both in business and technology, and help them advance their expansion goals.
The 11-week program will offer access to multinational corporations, VCs, investors, and tech experts.
Participants will gain training, mentorship, business introductions and practical workshops to help them develop a successful product-market fit alongside meaningful business growth and investment opportunities.
