Canadian Export Challenge

A one-day Global Accelerator is an event designed to get your company export-ready! There will be workshops, panels, and keynotes from industry experts—and opportunities to connect one-on-one with Canada’s global expansion support providers and gain privileged access to trade information, market intelligence, global accelerators, and more!

Each regional event also has two pitch competitions—one for startups and one for scale-ups. Competing entrepreneurs have the opportunity to pitch to win $2,500 (startup category) and $5,000 (scale-up category). 

Winners from each region will move onto the CXC Grand Finale in October. There, they will compete again for a chance to win up to $25,000 cash and up to $100,000 in support.

Even if you don’t intend to pitch, CXC is a great opportunity for companies to network with members of Canada’s entrepreneurial and export ecosystems.

In short, if you’re interested in going global with your business—CXC is for you!  The program is in partnership between Startup Canada, UPS, Export Development Canada and Trade Commissioner Service
