For socially and environmentally driven entrepreneurs seeking to move to Canada under the Startup Visa immigration pathway
Spring’s IMPACT Startup Visa (ISV) offers cohort-based virtual incubation and acceleration programs. We help immigrant entrepreneurs who own businesses that create a positive social or environmental impact, move to Canada, apply for Permanent Residence status and scale globally through the Canadian Startup Visa immigration pathway.
How do we do it? Apart from delivering the programs, we provide you with support and a community to help you make Canada the new home for your venture.
Many of us at Spring are either immigrants or have parents who have immigrated to Canada. While we cherish our current lives here, we have deep ties with our respective home countries. We see our being in Canada as an opportunity to bridge our communities back home with new opportunities and vice versa. Let us help you make a big life-changing move easier so you can focus on what really matters—people, planet and profit.
As a designated partner to the Canadian Government’s Start-Up Visa Program, we help entrepreneurs like you immigrate and move their businesses to Canada. Our online IMPACT Startup Visa Program combines the training, mentorship, opportunities, and connections needed to successfully scale in North America.
As a certified B-Corporation, we’ll also work with you to fine-tune the positive social and environmental impact you’re passionate about making through your business.
Please note that we accept applications on a rolling basis. We are currently evaluating applications for eligibility in the Winter cohort of the Impact Startup Visa Accelerator (program begins February 2023) and our Spring cohort of the Impact Startup Visa Incubator and Premium Incubator (program begins April 2023).
