Junto Health in partnership with the Canadian Trade Authority (CTA) launched its first-ever bicoastal accelerator program for Canadian digital health companies.

The CTA accelerator gives high-growth Canadian entrepreneurs in-depth knowledge about the U.S. Healthcare market and provides access to experienced mentors, strategic partners, prospective customers, and venture capital investors.
Junto Health and our partners at the Canadian Consulate, and local investors reviewed over 200 applications to find the best digital health companies.
Using our experience running accelerators in the past, we augmented our Startup Evaluation Scorecard to include the goals our client had for the accelerator program. We then separated and used the same scorecard to evaluate the semi-finalist companies.
After the tallies and averages were calculated, we interviewed candidates via video call to get a better sense of the goals they hoped to achieve with the program. When all was set and done, we notified our finalists and get ready to kickoff.
The CTA Digital Health program was built to accelerate the growth of Canada’s most promising early-stage digital health start-ups. Junto Health was responsible for the development, recruitment, and management of the mentor program. We facilitated connection between founders and mentors with networking events.
“Strong community and mentorship are the lifeblood of any successful entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
—David Cohen, Founder of Techstars
Junto Health facilitated masterclasses on entrepreneurship designed to refresh founders in specific areas as well as to spark connection between the individual teams in the cohort through shared experience.
