Brampton, Canada

Launch CBA

CBA Catalysts of Brampton is powered by the global start-up ecosystem, Cross Border Angels & Experts (CBA).

The Catalysts program is run by CBA to allow building synergies by creating an anchor group of mentors & investors from within the community and providing them a sophisticated platform to actively deliberate projects such as local businesses and startups to be considered for mentorship and/or investments. These Catalysts would be an eclectic mix of individuals from varied backgrounds such as successful business owners, CXOs, doctors, lawyers and CAs.

The Catalysts are the go to group for the Brampton community and beyond. The most promising and high potential projects will be channelized to them for deliberation and action post a rigorous screening exercise by CBA. Their actions may contribute through capital investments, mentorship & guidance and most importantly, community & economic development. CBA will also invite corporates based in the city to actively engage with the Catalysts to support relevant projects.

The evening started with a Welcome Address by Kaushal Chokshi, President Cross Border Angels & Experts (CBA) where he shared his vision about empowering independent cities economically by building an ecosystem to engage with innovation & entrepreneurship. He emphasized that the Catalysts is an important building block in this ecosystem that brings together like-minded intellectuals from varied backgrounds to deliberate projects for mentorship & investments. The Welcome Address was followed by an interesting panel discussion on the topic, "Leveraging the Start-up Visa Program For Addressing Economic Development Through Innovation & Entrepreneurship".
