The TAP Life Sciences program by World Trade Centre Toronto empowers SMEs in the MedTech industry for strategic international growth. With top commercialization advisors, tailored coaching, and essential resources, it equips businesses to scale successfully.

This program, hosted in partnership with MaRS, is designed for leaders, CEOs, owners, and C-suite executives of Ontario-based MedTech companies. Over seven weeks, through a mix of virtual and in-person hands-on workshops and mentoring sessions, seasoned professionals help participants develop an effective commercialization strategy for international markets.


Canadian MedTech companies often secure their first clients internationally before establishing a significant presence in Canada. Early-stage ventures must quickly understand user, payer and regulatory preferences in global markets. Given the industry's rapid growth, international readiness is crucial for initial commercialization. Canadian companies must prioritize export readiness and international business skills early to succeed globally and build sustainable businesses.

Unlock Global Opportunities with TAP Life Sciences. This program is designed to equip SMEs in the Medical Technology industry with:

  • Understanding key concepts in Medical Technology commercialization for international market access.
  • Ensuring product meets healthcare needs and demonstrates value.
  • Validating target markets and creating a tangible export plan to serve as a blueprint to support commercialization efforts.
  • Creating profitable entities with a local and global customer base.
