Accelerator Program graduation

Our graduation from the Accelerator program

Our CEO, Josh Pottel, was invited earlier this year to celebrate the first graduation of the Pilot Accelerator program created by adMare BioInnovations in 2020 with the support of the Ministry of Economy, Innovation and Energy, and Ville de Montréal. This program was created to help promising young companies scale-up and develop the Canadian life sciences ecosystem.

We would like to reflect on the past two years and express our gratitude to the adMare BioInnovations teams who have provided us with a range of support: in scientific, legal, commercialization, and marketing affairs, all of which helped us grow into the Research as a Service company we are today. We have learned how to reach a more targeted audience and have had the opportunity to connect with other members of the community through adMare’s network, which has allowed us to expand our list of clients and partners. Along with them, we were able to secure CAD$1 million dollars to continue improving our proprietary software and meet the needs of our new clients. Later, we became a collaborator of adMare to deliver computer-aided drug design resources to other selected emerging life sciences companies.

Onboarding more projects means needing more hands to complete them. Over the past two years, our team has grown from two to nine people. As a result, we’ve moved into our own office in downtown Montréal. Thanks to some financial support offered by the program, we also invested in our own computational infrastructure. We are proud to be self-sufficient, profitable, and providing new jobs here in Canada after having received the acceleration support of this program.

We are now using the skills and resources facilitated by adMare to move forward, to continue to grow our business, and to reach for even higher summits with the goal of becoming an anchor company in the Canadian life sciences community.
