Cdling’s Canadian WatchList

As we prepare to welcome Nikhil Khalghatgi from SoftBank’s NYC office to a Startup Grind Fireside Chat + OFFICE HOURS on October 25,  we have reached out to the most important players involved in the cross-border commercialization of technology in Canada.

Many thanks to our collaborators at MaRS Commons, the MaRS Mentor Network and top players from Waterloo, Silicon Valley, Ottawa, Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto who responded.

If you see a startup below, it has been confidentially recommended by a top player for this WatchList.  Often by more than one player. Between now and October 20, we would be grateful for any further opinions about these startups that you may share via Cdling.

To say the least, this list is diverse. First impulse: many of these companies do not even belong on the same list for a variety of reasons.  However, I suppose the diversity is a function of the diversity of Canadian startups, top players’ perception of SoftBank’s investment profile (everyone was given the same criteria for recommendations) and SoftBank’s diverse interests.

Here is a reminder of Nikhil’s investment profile.  Cdling will prepare a report for him incorporating all input and he will make his final 5 selections for one on one meetings.

Remember: Cdling is a work in progress. This is an alpha stage experiment for us. Thank you again to everyone for their input and thanks in advance for your participation and understanding.
