Lazaridis 10 Announced!
After an exhaustive coast to coast tour, we have been selected to join an exclusive cohort of the 10 best and most promising Canadian tech companies with huge potential.
The Better Software Company offers a fully integrated Small Business Management Solution to help owners Improve and Simplify their entire business, using a Software as a Service (SaaS) model.
“We created L-SPARK to highlight Ottawa’s talent, domain expertise and operational know-how in SaaS. After all, the executives of Blackberry, Mitel, Nortel, Newbridge Networks and Cognos have an undeniable track record of tech success,” Leo Lax, Executive Managing Director at L-SPARK says. “Through the Lazaridis Scale-up program, The Better Software Company will have an opportunity to leverage comparable networks from across Canada to take the company to the next level.”
The Lazaridis Institute Canadian Scale-Up Program was created to address three gaps in the ecosystem preventing Canadian companies from scaling; access to capital, access to experience and access to markets. Featuring instructors like Chris Burry, co-CEO of US Market Access Center and Industry Fellow at the University of California Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology; and Bill Reichert, managing director and co-founder of Garage Technology Ventures the Scale-Up Program will knock down so many barriers for us.
“Joining the L-Spark accelerator had a massive impact on the company’s trajectory and was the single best thing that’s happened to this company to date. Now, being recognized as one of the top 10 startups in Canada with the potential to hit $1B is validating for the massive effort the team has put in. We are looking to hit explosive growth with the support and mentorship of Lazaridis Institute Canadian Scale-Up Program.” Steve Cody, Founder & CEO The Better Software Company.
The Better Software Company will use the Scale-Up Program to prepare for the next round of investment to fuel our growth and expansion.
Serial entrepreneur, Steve Cody, has started 15 local and national businesses in the service, rental, e-commerce, and retail markets.
