Today the Canadian Innovation Exchange (CIX) announced the winners of the CIX Canadian Technology Accelerator program.
Launched in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade of Canada and the Consulate General in San Francisco earlier this year, the CIX Accelerator will give two employees from the three selected technology companies the chance to work for three months rent-free in the Plug and Play Tech Center in the heart of Silicon Valley.
The CIX Accelerator winners are:
- Montreal's DokDok – The creators of Context.io, an email API that turns inboxes into data sources that can be leveraged by application developers.
- Toronto's Fuse Powered – A digital mobile game publisher, partnering with elite game studios to bring top next-generation games to mobile users.
- Barrie's gShift Labs – An organic SEO service helping marketers gain control of their entire web presence, including sites, blogs, press releases, social channels and analytics.
"We are very pleased with the level of entrants to our first CIX Accelerator," said Chris Arsenault, co-Chair of CIX and Managing Partner, iNovia Capital. "The single hardest decision the selection committee had to make was to choose only three startups from among so many amazing companies that would benefit the most from their three-month experience in the Valley."
