Bringing a new product to market is a risky, not to mention daunting, venture. Doing so in a new country with a complex healthcare system and different regulatory environment can be even more challenging.

Since MATTER’s founding in 2015, we’ve partnered with the Consulate General of Canada each year to advise Canadian life science and healthcare entrepreneurs. Called the Canada-Chicago Mentoring Program (C2MP), MATTER mentors help Canadian entrepreneurs refine their business development strategy for the U.S. healthcare market, increasing their chances of success upon launch.
