The Canadian Digital Media Network announced today that two more digital media innovation centres have joined the CDMN’s cross-Canada network to enable collaboration and advance digital innovation nationally.
The Sault Ste. Marie Innovation Centre in northern Ontario, and Tech SouthEast in Moncton, New Brunswick become the newest nodes on the CDMN network, bringing the total number across Canada to 12 nodes with 20 locations. The CDMN has ambitious expansion plans for the network, and intends to sign additional nodes west of Ontario before the end of the year.
Prospective nodes are eager to take advantage of the benefits associated with membership in this national network. These hubs will gain domestic and international market exposure for their organizations and client companies, and have access to services that enable their facilities and their clients to leverage regional programming and best practices of network members. In addition, they will join Canada’s largest members-only online collaboration of commercialization resources.
Applications are currently open for the CDMN Soft-Landing Program, an initiative for mature startups and small- to medium-sized enterprises who can benefit from a getting a toe-hold outside Canada to expand their businesses. Until November 16, companies can apply for up to $4,000 in funding to cover travel and accommodation expenses associated with a three-month stay at a business accelerator in an economy of interest.
