Meet the Entrepreneurs In Spring’s IMPACT Startup Visa Incubator

Here we have our third intake of early-stage entrepreneurs joining Spring’s newly founded IMPACT Startup Visa (ISV) Incubator! The incubator is designed to support immigrant entrepreneurs in developing a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and launch plan for the Canadian market.

Besides launching a business in Canada, what is another similarity between these ISV participants? The desire to make a positive difference, either socially or environmentally, through business!

We invite you to read on and learn about these startups, which range from a recycled clothing platform to getting professional medical help right at your doorstep! Feel free to connect with them on LinkedIn and give them a hearty Canadian welcome. 🇨🇦
