On Monday, November 22, Coresight Research, will host a Demo Day that will provide an opportunity for each CTA Retail Tech Program cohort company to present their company to an audience made up of local investors, channel partners, and potential customers. Each company will be allowed five minutes to present, followed by two minutes for moderator feedback and questions from the audience.

CTA Retail Tech Program is a bi-coastal program offering Seed + to Series A companies in-market support in the East Coast and West Coast US markets. The 2021 cohort is made up of seven Canadian Retail Tech companies, offering products and services across the e-commerce, supply chain, in-store experience, and customer service subsectors. The cohort comprises experienced founders who have previous experience fundraising and secured at least $1million in funds and/or recurring revenue, and looking to leverage additional funding/revenue to expand their market presence in the US.

Having completed the five-week East Coast program in October 2021, the cohort has now moved into the three-week West Coast program. The West Coast program include sessions around West Coast market entry, fundraising in Silicon Valley and LA, as well as pitch coaching and 1:1 mentorship. The West Coast program will culminate in a Demo Day, co-hosted by Coresight Research, and for an audience of investors, as well as  potential customers and local partners.
