CDL Prime admits diverse ventures pursuing many different applications of technology to industry problems. Strong Prime ventures include those with differentiated technology, regardless of having selected a target industry vertical. CDL startups work with mentors to sharpen objectives, prioritize time and resources, raise capital, and engage with experts working on the frontiers of research. They do this through intensive full-day sessions that take place every eight weeks with the purpose of assessing progress and setting new short-term objectives. Each day, the startups work with mentors to sharpen objectives, prioritize time and resources, raise capital, and engage with experts working on the frontiers of research.

The Prime program is particularly suited for founders pursuing state-of-the-art technological innovations across diverse industries. This stream is tailored towards early-stage companies (early venture or growth) and even projects. 

CDL mentors include accomplished entrepreneurs, experienced operators, active angel and venture investors, world-leading scientists, engineers, and economists. In the Prime steam, this Includes Anthony Lacavera, Founding Partner, CDL-Toronto | Founder, Globalive Capital, and Elizabeth Caley, Co-CEO of Poppy.

In regards to Alariss’s involvement, Joyce is most looking forward to receiving mentorship from experienced companies and individuals as the company gears towards US expansion. She is excited to get to meet Fellows and Mentors alike who are similarly passionate about applying technological advancement to a myriad of industries and causes. As a company that puts connection with people first, we are excited to widen our network of forward-thinking, driven industry leaders and changemakers.
