Is MAP right for my business?

  • Startup businesses building mobile applications whose products would be conceived, developed, and sold within one year—mostly for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry platforms.
  • Established businesses developing mobile applications for future networks, who could benefit from MEIC’s access to research infrastructure to test their product’s usability, market potential, and technology by linking them to a range of contributing stakeholders including prospective consumers.
  • Businesses exploring the collaborative development, distribution, and interactive play of mobile applications over the expanding capabilities of the mobile internet.

Program Participant Eligibility
Acceptance is on a first-come-first-served basis, and the program will accept a maximum of 40 companies. Participants are able to register on a per workshop basis or purchase a MAP package including all 6 workshops.

Hear what last year’s participants had to say about MAP:

“MAP was great for helping us develop Fresh Grown Apps by helping us explore different areas that would affect our business. BlissEscape was developed after we did a thorough trend and drivers analysis by creating a Foresight board after learning the method from Dr. Suzanne Stein of OCAD in a MAP session. Networking with my cohorts at MAP was inspiring.  There were so many creative and driven people working on innovative projects. The energy of the group was motivating and the experience was enriching.”

-Colleen Madden Devan, FreshGrownApps

“As an entrepreneur experiencing the trials and tribulations of building a mobile startup, the MAP half-day workshops have been a revelation. With a diverse lineup of experienced presenters, insightful roundtable discussions, and a close-knit group of like-minded people to connect with, each workshop arms me with the information and inspiration I need to succeed in the mobile space. Highly recommended.”

-John Krissilas, TransitHub

“Excellent sessions – very useful content and good presenters.”

-Arvind Karir, MacXmum

“The last few weeks have been an amazing experience. I have thoroughly enjoyed the content of the MAP sessions and hanging with like-minded people. I definitely believe the information provided by MAP will help us in our future endeavours. We must keep in touch.”

-Steven Chinman, Metal Piranha
