Accelerated Growth Service

We’re helping high-growth
Canadian businesses stay in Canada.
And grow from here.

How we help

Our Innovation Advisors use their extensive network of contacts to help businesses find, and take advantage of, everything that government can do for them — from financing to technical advice to foreign market expertise.

AGS companies get:
  • Free, expert support from an Innovation Advisor — a seasoned former entrepreneur with an extensive network of contacts
  • A personally tailored plan to help them grow and meet their goals
  • A custom-built, government team drawn from a network of 70+ federal, provincial, municipal and non-profit partners
  • Advice on how to pitch their business to government, navigate government programming, and position their applications

We’re always on the hunt for incorporated Canadian companies with year-over-year revenue growth – especially over the past three years. AGS companies are generating at least $5 million annually and have the capacity and willingness to keep growing. They’re laser-focused and export and innovation-driven.
