A FOUR-PART CUSTOMIZED PROGRAM

1. Business and commercial evaluation (required)

An extensive evaluation of your organization will be conducted by the selected external consultant. This part will highlight the strengths and weaknesses as well as the challenges and development potential of your company in the electric and smart transportation sector. It will also be the time to evaluate the business opportunities that are available to you. This personalized overview will help better understand what strategies you will need to put into place.

2. Strategic recommendations

Companies that have received a recommendation in Part 1 for the adaptation of one or more products will have access to the analyses and recommendations necessary to continue their thinking. This step will allow us to determine adaptation options, prioritize them, and make strategic recommendations related to the design or changes to your plant. It is an additional step to see even more clearly.

3. Additional funding

Let’s go further! Because applying for funding and finding financial aid can quickly become a headache, we can help you every step of the way. Businesses with significant growth potential will have access to this complementary step, including an evaluation of available financial aid and a bank of optional hours to help apply for funding.

4. Marketing plan

A robust, customized plan will help you flourish in the industry. Companies that have received an assessment will be able to update their marketing plans to integrate the concepts of the previous steps, facilitate deployment, and prepare for the transition. This step includes customized strategic objectives, company repositioning, a distribution channel strategy, the required financial and human resources, and an efficient production system.
