CTA participants will be invited to join us here in the UK to attend the events that will allow them to build and grow an in-market presence and network. Opportunities will be arranged to allow the participants to share their value proposition to key market players, investors and potential customers during pitching and networking sessions. More information will be shared with the selected cohort.


“I think the CTA UK is the perfect landing pad for any Tech company to launch in the market. It generated insights and results beyond my initial expectations. The UK Canadian delegation were great hosts and I am looking forward to leveraging our new connections and acquired knowledge to fully embrace the opportunity that the UK market represents. I want to thank everyone involved, I am truly lucky to have been a part of this and I wish it on anyone with the same aspirations.” – Alexandre Bouchard, V3 Stent (UK Enterprise Software CTA 2022-2023)

 “It was one of the finest programs in the recent times. Well planned and thought through.” – Prateek Saxena, Hygge (UK Digital Energy CTA 2021-2022)
