The Centre for Commercialization of Research (CCR) accelerates the commercialization of publicly funded research in Canada and enables the growth of Canadian early-stage companies by providing an entrepreneur what they need exactly when they need it – from start-up to established firm.

Acting as a catalyst, CCR helps these emerging businesses grow to the point where they can attract private investment, and ultimately become sustainable, global competitors. CCR is able to assist these young companies and their management teams in navigating the sometimes tricky waters of business, offering an integrated suite of services that work together to help a business grow: management expertise and guidance; access to domestic and global customers, networks and markets; and early stage financing.

CCR’s core value proposition is its expertise and time, along with that of its partners, as well as access to a vast array of networks. The team and its partners help select the most appropriate resources and create a customized solution for each supported company.

Leveraging its national and global reach, CCR connects its client companies to the commercialization community in Canada through the Canadian Commercialization Consortium (C⊃3;) and to international partners and customers through the International Commercialization Alliance (ICA).

CCR is a federally funded member of the Centres of Excellence for Commercialization and Research (CECR) program, under the Networks of Centres of Excellence program, which forges partnerships between universities, industry, government and not-for-profit organizations. Its goal is to turn Canadian research and entrepreneurial talent into economic and social benefits for all Canadians.
