Fields-CQAM is structured to ensure that our discoveries are quickly exploited to the benefit of Ontario's economy. This rapid transfer of knowledge requires best practices in intellectual property management and a pro-active incubation strategy for innovative start-ups.
Fields has a long history of fostering some of the best and brightest Canadian start-ups of the last fifteen years, from Sigma Analysis to R2 Financial Technologies to JUMP Math.
Fields-CQAM continues in this tradition, encouraging the founding of start-ups based on mathematical techniques developed within the Centre. In addition to providing physical infrastructure, Fields-CQAM will provide customized logistical support such as education, mentoring, networking, advice, and connections to risk capital.
Fields-CQAM is always interested in hearing from individuals or companies who would like to join our class of incubated companies. To be eligible, companies must be engaged in activities that involve the application and commercialization of concepts and methods in any of the mathematical sciences, including statistics and computer sciences.
The duration of the program is one year, with a possible one year extension. Browse below to learn about the benefits provided to companies admitted to the Fields-CQAM Incubation Program or download a synopsis of our incubation information session.
