About the Cohort

The automotive and mobility sectors are undergoing significant transformations, and their performance and capabilities are constantly assessed by an array of stakeholders as they confront ever-changing challenges. 

For the automotive and mobility solutions companies to scale-up, they must innovate, continually reassess their strategies, and manage change throughout the automotive value chain in a timely manner.

The Growth Development Program (GDP), developed in collaboration with Scotiabank, will help small businesses succeed in today's fiercely competitive global economy by focusing on significant and specific challenges and transforming them into growth-oriented strategies.

Canada's top scale-up business experts will provide a series of hands-on workshops and mentorship sessions for scalable automotive and mobility businesses. Companies will graduate with a professionally vetted strategic growth plan as well as gain access to a dynamic professional community through World Trade Centre-Toronto’s peer-to-peer network.

Don’t miss your chance to join the upcoming GDP cohort that begins on January 24, 2023.

This cohort will run from January to March and its agenda will include:

  • Developing Your Growth Mindset
  • Maximizing Operational Efficiency
  • Optimizing Financial Management and Funding
