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. The opportunities provided by the CIAP would enable them to explore emerging market opportunities in Canada while accessing business acceleration facilities at Carleton University.
