Quantum Days marked the beginning of an extraordinary year, with over 1000 participants joining us online from across the globe. Simultaneously, we launched the Canadian Quantum Directory – a collaborative hub connecting stakeholders in the Canadian Quantum Ecosystem.
We held a Deep Tech in Health + Medical Innovation event held in Edmonton, Alberta. This event brought together students, academics, and industry experts to discuss deep tech's role in healthcare and the critical training required for future advancements. This event sparked insightful discussion and catalyzed a compelling call to action.
Our team's recent initiatives have been instrumental in identifying and pursuing deep tech projects and opportunities for our members. Through strategic engagements across Canada, including in Vancouver, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton, Kingston, Montreal, and Waterloo, we have fostered significant partnerships and showcased the innovative capabilities of the Canadian deep tech ecosystem.
At the Canadian Network of Scientific Platforms’ annual meeting in Montreal, our President, Marie D’Iorio, highlighted these efforts. Her presentation on “Building the Canadian Deep Tech Ecosystem” not only showcased our achievements but also opened avenues for future collaborations.
Our outreach extended internationally as we brought a trade delegation to Japan and Korea, facilitating international partnerships, and supporting Canadian companies' growth in global markets.
We also participated in events to identify emerging trends and investment opportunities. Participation in Hello Tomorrow’s Deep Tech Days in Paris and the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona provided insights into global deep tech developments and fostered connections with key international players. Additional travels to Japan, Singapore, and Korea were pivotal in our international strategy. An important objective for Deep Tech Canada is to identify potential partners and explore international business development opportunities for our members. These efforts also lay the groundwork for future trade missions and collaborative ventures. By engaging with key players in these regions, we established a foundation for ongoing partnerships and opened channels for our members to expand their reach and influence in the Asian market. This proactive approach is a testament to our commitment to facilitating tangible, international growth opportunities for our members and partners.
As we bid farewell to 2023, we express gratitude to our community, partners, members and supporters who made this journey possible. Here’s to pushing boundaries, breaking barriers, and pioneering innovation in 2024!
