Canadian Entrepreneurs in New England (CENE) is a volunteer, member-based organization focused on helping Canadian companies expand and succeed globally. Our members are founders, innovators and executives who are focused on changing the world through life sciences and technology. They are the heart and soul of our organization and share a valued principle - to give back to Canada. And they have a lot of fun along the way.
The CENE was founded in 2013, and working closely with the Consulate General of Canada in Boston we launched several ventures to support the growth of Canadian companies into the US, including the Canadian Mentoring Service. We've now expanded our reach through our flagship True North and our Innovation Events programs to offer Canadian companies even more structured and highly valued opportunities to work with and learn from our members.
Our work is led by our Board of Directors, our Executive Director, and CENE's Laureates: an accomplished group recognized for their outstanding contributions to supporting our community of global Canadians.
We welcome Canadians (and friends of Canada) working in Boston's innovation ecosystem to join our warm community of highly accomplished members. We are united by our shared love for Canada and our passion to show our country's amazing innovation to the world.
