Race Roster heads to Silicon Valley through Canadian Technology Accelerator

Race Roster, a London, Ontario-based company that develops a platform for companies to organize and fundraise for their endurance-focused events, has been hand-picked to participate in the Canadian Technology Accelerator, CTA@SFTech, in San Francisco.

Starting this month, Race Roster CEO Alex Vander Hoeven and marketing manager Dennis Mazajlo will be based in San Francisco, where they will seek strategic partners to help them turn their company into a global brand in recreation technology.

“We’re at a critical stage in our growth where we have an opportunity to go global. We need guidance from experienced founders in the Valley on what to expect, and what pitfalls to avoid,” said Vander Hoeven.

CTA@SFTech is a federal program managed by the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service, which provides Canadian high-growth market-ready companies with support to access global markets and entrepreneurship services.

For startups interested in the CTA program — which also sends startups to places like Boston, India, and New York City — applications are accepted from October until February for next year’s cohort. Check out more details here.
