Opportunities New Brunswick (ONB), in partnership with Profitual, is recruiting founders, CEOs or key leaders from 10 New Brunswick information and communication technologies (ICT) companies to participate in its Collision 2023 Readiness 9-Week Program from April 26th to June 29th, 2023.


The program is aimed at developing the skills and materials necessary for successfully raising venture capital investment and applying these learnings in real-life scenarios. It will create a platform from which early and growth-stage companies can accelerate their investment prospects by accessing education and hands-on mentorship from seasoned professionals.

ONB’s Collision 2023 Readiness Program will be delivered in the following three stages:

  • Budgeting and Forecasting.
  • Fundraising pitch preparation and the development of a tailored list of investors for future targeting.
  • Attending Collision 2023 in Toronto where participants will be introduced to up to five potential investors.

The majority of the program will be delivered virtually over the course of 9 weeks from April 26 to June 29, 2023. However, participants who choose to attend Collision 2023 will be required to travel to Toronto from June 26 – 29, 2023 at their own cost.
