Synergy Lab's flagship Pioneer Program was designed to help international founders navigate business growth in Canada.

All of our programs are built and executed by industry leaders who have ‘been there and done that,’ and are supported by subject matter experts across all topics our clients need to learn to be successful.

The Pioneer Program is ideal for international start-ups who have some level of technology innovation. Business acumen and funds to invest over the first year are required in order to be considered eligible.

The Synergy Lab team is excited about the positive impact this program makes. We’re the leading Canadian market-entry service provider, and that’s something we take great pride in.
