2023 NAVIGATE Highlights
Network Events

We bring together industry members, researchers, and investors to welcome participating companies to Saskatoon. Program participants have an opportunity to present their companies to an engaged crowd and to build network connections with the attendees.

Ecosystem Training Day

The Ecosystem Training Day introduces Navigate participants to many of the funding programs and research partners that available here in Saskatchewan and Canada. Additionally, the Navigate program includes a Canadian Business Workshop, an introduction to Canadian taxes, law, regulatory, and IP, facilitated by local experts.


During our On-Farm and Food-Tech Navigate Programs participants toured a variety of farms, labs, research facilities, food production facilities and more! These tours provided first-hand insight to food production and processing practices in Canada as well as an opportunity to connect with sector experts.

1:1 Meetings

Connecting with relevant local experts is one of the most valuable aspects of the Navigate program. Our team carefully curates introductions between the program participants and local members of the business, research, and industry communities to share information, gather insight, and make connections for potential collaboration opportunities.
