About Us

WCAN is led by the Manitoba Technology Accelerator (MTA), TecEdmonton, and Alacrity, three leading business incubators / technology accelerators in Western Canada working to identify medical technology start-ups interested in forming a Joint Venture in China.

​MTA

MT​A is Manitoba’s premier technology commercialization organization focusing on helping disruptive
technologies reach early customers and then scaling the business.  Our team has experienced success
growing business ideas into global companies. MTA has recently expanded our service offering and
expertise to provide international entrepreneurs an opportunity to move to Canada through the Start Up Visa (SUV) program. We have also empowered Canadian Entrepreneurs to expand internationally through the Western Canadian Incubator Alliance (WCAN).

The MTA Commercialization program is the leading business accelerator in Manitoba. It is designed for
entrepreneurs with a science and technology oriented business idea or for early-stage companies.

Our commercialization business provides assistance in terms of:

  • Business coaching, mentoring & active participation

  • ​Investment of over $280 million dollars

looking to grow in a new environment. We provide:

  • ​Office Space
