Soft Landing program helps Canadian companies go global
DEEP Inc. has been confirmed as one of the Canadian companies chosen to participate in the Canadian Digital Media Network’s (CDMN) Soft Landing program as part of the fall 2016 cohort to help forge partnerships and connections aimed at international expansion.
DEEP Inc. is dedicated to exploring and defining the evolving language of cinematic VR and has developed LIQUID CINEMA™ a suite of sophisticated proprietary players and tools that allows the authoring and distribution of story based cinematic VR content across multiple platforms and devices.
Participating in the fall 2016 CDMN program, DEEP Inc. will be afforded the opportunity to expand abroad, introducing this patented software to the foreign marketplace.
“We are very happy to have been chosen within this highly competitive program and are exited to be heading to Los Angeles and San Francisco to build on existing partnerships and expand our US networks.” say DEEP Inc. founder/CEO, Thomas Wallner.
CDMN’s Soft Landing program helps mature start-ups and SMEs kick-start their international growth by helping them access a foreign market. For a period of up to three months, the participating company can take up residence in a partnered facility that provides the regional support required to help grow its business, as well as receiving up to $4,000 in travel and accommodation costs.
“The Soft Landing program has already resulted in millions of dollars in new business and investment for our participating companies and generated more than a 30x return on CDMN’s investment of funds and resources,” said Avvey Peters, CDMN’s Managing Director. “International expansion is more important than ever as a driver of wealth and job creation for the Canadian economy. Our success to date demonstrates the tremendous impact that even a modest investment in global business development can have.”
The Soft Landing program runs three times a year and companies must meet a range of criteria, including having a technology product or service that is market ready and has foreign market potential. Read our Soft Landing page for more information.
