About the Zen Launchpad + Spring
Product & Technology Accelerator Program
Zen Launchpad + Spring's Product & Technology Accelerator Program (PTAP) offers cohort-based face-to-face incubation and acceleration programs. We in partnership with Spring Activator help immigrant entrepreneurs who own businesses that create a positive social or environmental impact, move to Canada, apply for Permanent Residence status and scale globally through the Canadian Startup Visa immigration pathway.
How do we do it? Apart from delivering the programs, we provide you with support and a community to help you make Canada the new home for your venture.
What is exactly the Start-Up Visa Program?
Spring Activator is a designated organization within the Canadian Start-Up Visa Program, where the Canadian government looks to attract other entrepreneurs from around the world to come and bring their businesses to Canada.
