From Our
CDL Mentors

​I know first hand the transformational impact that the mentors at CDL can have since I participated in the program as a founder. I participate in CDL as a mentor to pay-it-forward by helping the next generation of founders succeed the way we have.

Michael Helander • Associate, CDL-Toronto Founder and CEO, OTI Lumionics

CDL adds significant value to the startups in its Ocean cohort through a rigorous objective-based approach. With short time-lines between objective sprints, the startups are accountable to the CDL mentors and staff to reach and report on the milestones they set. This discipline can super-charge the important steps for the startup which are outlined in the objectives.
