An internal team at OCE will review all materials and meet to determine suitability. If successful, your company will be invited to initiate an application in the AccessOCE platform.
Once the internal review of your application is completed and endorsed, your company will pitch at a panel review meeting to three external reviewers from the Investment Advisory Committee (IAC) who will make the recommendation to OCE on whether OCE will be investing in your company.
Please note, only companies deemed appropriate, both from the standpoint of eligibility and fit with OCE's investment portfolio, will be invited to initiate an application.
All Market Readiness applications are evaluated by an Investment Advisory Committee (IAC), which is comprised of a group of independent subject matter and business experts. Applicants are expected to both submit an online application and present to the IAC during a panel review meeting.
The IAC makes a recommendation to OCE based on its assessment of the application and presentation. The final funding decision rests with OCE, through its Internal Review Panel (IRP), which is comprised of senior OCE staff.
