Tundra and William Joseph join forces in a collaborative venture aimed to celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit and help entrepreneurs turn vision into reality
CALGARY, Oct. 31, 2017 /CNW/ - William Joseph Communications, one of Western Canada's leading full-service marketing agencies, has partnered with Tundra Process Solutions as the official Marketing Partner for the Acceleration Centre for Entrepreneurs (A.C.E.) program in Calgary, Alberta.
The A.C.E. program was launched by Tundra in 2016 with a purpose of helping Albertan entrepreneurs by accelerating the commercialization of near-market ready carbon-reducing technologies that can solve some of industry's biggest challenges. Tundra has spent the last 18 years building some of the strongest relationships in industry, and now entrepreneurs have a unique opportunity to gain access to market by partnering with Tundra in a creative way. Participants can vie for a partnership opportunity, equity investment, royalty arrangement, or distribution agreement through a Dragon's Den style pitch in 'The Tundra Tank' to a panel of sponsors and industry experts, including JWN, law firm Bennet Jones, Canada's largest accounting, tax and consulting firm MNP, and now William Joseph. Participants also have access to a dynamic, high-tech workspace designed to foster creativity and collaboration free of charge.
As the official marketing partner of the A.C.E. program, William Joseph will provide mentorship and guidance to Alberta's best and brightest to quicken the commercialization of their product or service. In offering marketing workshops and consultations to get A.C.E. companies up and running, William Joseph will be the Marketer in Residence for the program, with a Strategist spending time in the open office environment to meet with A.C.E. companies and discuss how they can improve their marketing.
"William Joseph has always put an emphasis on supporting and driving Western Canada's entrepreneurial spirit, especially when it comes to technology and innovation" said Ryan Townend, Owner and CEO of William Joseph Communications. "We are thrilled at the opportunity to partner with Tundra and use our expertise to help industry game-changers achieve their boldest marketing ambitions." William Joseph will also offer the full Accelerator package, a premium marketing service for entrepreneurs looking to kick-start their business' marketing, to all the selected Tundra's A.C.E. program winners.
Erik Allan, A.C.E. Program Director, said he was looking forward to the strategic insight and experience that William Joseph will bring to A.C.E. companies. "Nothing is more difficult than trying to bring a new technology to market, especially in this challenging environment. That's why we are pleased to be partnering with the best in the business when it comes to marketing and load up our entrepreneurs with the right ingredients for success. We have a solid team of partners now, and together, we are going to shake things up and accelerate the adoption of new technologies that make our industry cleaner, safer, and more productive."
