Entrepreneur challenge

Burnaby, B.C.-based tech company Nano One acquired a manufacturing business in Quebec to start production of battery materials using a patented process. But it needed help to ensure a smooth integration of the acquired company, while navigating geographical distances, and different team cultures and languages.

BDC expertise

  • Faster-than-expected integration. Pilot production 2-4 months ahead of schedule at the acquired facility
