The Commercialization Consulting and Mentoring (CCM) Program provides funds to assist Atlantic Canadian businesses and institutions in the final stages of commercialization. Businesses or institutions may use the funds to hire consultants or mentors to help them get a new and innovative product, technology or process to market.
CCM funds can also be used to cover the cost of group learning activities for businesses on the verge of commercialization.
CCM is a LearnSphere program, with recently renewed funding from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA).
Note to applicants: looking for a consultant?
Applicants to the CCM program are free to choose the consultant they wish to help them meet their project objectives. The consultant does not have to be a LearnSphere Associate. At the time of application, LearnSphere will assess the consultant to ensure his or her skills and experience match those needed by the applicant, and that the consultant is arm’s length from the applicant.
