It involves a two-week intensive boot camp and acceleration programme comprising of start-up ecosystem exposure, industry visits, and meetings with Canadian ecosystem enablers like investors, government officials, and business mentors. The first batch of  Indian  entrepreneurs reached Ottawa recently as part of the scheme. The entrepreneurs were from wide range of fields including agri-tech, life science, medical technologies, and energy.
