E2Tech is pleased to welcome our newest Sustaining Partner, the Consulate General of Canada in Boston!
The Consulate General of Canada in Boston covers the New England states of Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The Consulate provides services for Canadians abroad in New England. Andrew Maker, Trade Commissioner for the Consulate, says that New England is a great opportunity for investors, and the market is fairly easy to transition into due to cultural similarities. Andrew focuses mostly on climate and cleantech companies looking to get more exposure throughout New England.
The Consulate has a robust team of Trade Commissioners, including Andrew, helping Canadian businesses explore opportunities in the region, as well assisting American companies with expansion in Canada. These are free and confidential services. Aligned with Canada’s Climate Plan, the Trade Commissioner Service has dedicated programs and events throughout the region working to reduce climate change and introduce Canadian innovation.
The Consulate in Boston is also host to a variety of Canadian Technology Accelerator programs, encouraging Canadian start-up business development through business introductions and local market intelligence in the region. These are often four to six month mentorship programs, with the overarching goal of solving the climate issue, while also creating economic wealth. These programs have successfully transitioned companies into the US market, while also supporting their long term growth. If you have general questions about the CTA program, you can email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact your regional TCS office.
