BEING PART OF THE CIAMIL MEANS:


A NETWORKING PROGRAM

First and foremost, the CIAMIL is a networking program whose aim is to build a vast network of strategic and technology partners, including originators who have smart mobility needs. Through this network, businesses and entrepreneurs can establish new relationships, have access to databases, obtain strategic and technological support, and benefit from privileged information to develop innovative projects adapted to their partners’ and customers’ needs. Relying on a collaborative dynamic, this type of networking helps accelerate validation of new concepts and of resulting technological applications by testing them in real conditions of use.

EXCEPTIONAL VISIBILITY

In addition to networking and development opportunities, CIAMIL partners will benefit from greater visibility. Building on an enhancement and communication strategy, the City of Laval Economic Development Division will promote the incubator, its services as well as its incomes and outputs, to economic and political decision makers. This strategy will focus on dissemination of the successes and various initiatives generated by the incubator through its website, communication with the media, launches and networking events.

COACHING SERVICES

Businesses and entrepreneurs will also have access to coaching and facilitation services provided by a network of specialized professionals and mentors experienced in various fields. This, in addition to local experts from the City of Laval Economic Development Division, the Table d’action en entrepreneuriat de Laval (Laval Entrepreneurial Action Table), as well as from CIAMIL partner organizations and companies.

ACCESS TO A TRANSPORTATION EXPERIMENTATION PLATFORM

Thousands of workers and citizens use Laval’s road network every day, and they take public transit to travel throughout the City’s territory as well as in the metropolitan area. Thus, you will benefit from the information on their movements in order to test your mobility-related innovations.
