The Scientific Officer Program – Researchers from scientific networks and partner organizations are matched with CABHI’s innovators and companies through the Scientific Officer (SO) Program. Researchers provide scientific advice and expertise to CABHI-supported innovators to enhance the rigour of validation trials to help innovators refine their value proposition.
Community of Practice – CABHI served as a founding member in the emerging Community of Practice (CoP) amongst Ontario-funded research and innovation organizations. CABHI plans to play a similarly active and engaged role in the CoP, providing staffing resources, infrastructure (e.g., physical space, the interactive Leap platform, design thinking and Knowledge Mobilization services, etc.) to ensure the greatest possible success and impact from the group. CABHI expects new partnerships to emerge from the CoP, and also plans to share learnings and best practices with groups beyond the CoP.

Plus, eligible companies may access additional investment up to $400,000 from the Ontario Brain Institute, $150,000 from Greyhill Capital Partners, commercialization and funding support from Ontario Bioscience Innovation Organization, and business financing from Clearco.

What Our Companies Say about CABHI
CEO, iGuard Home Solutions
“CABHI’s investment provided foundational funding that enabled us to kick-off our next-generation product development. CABHI went beyond what we could have expected by making an introduction to the Ontario Brain Institute that led OBI to provide matching funding. CABHI’s investment and reputation assisted iGuard in securing a cohort position at a large US agetech accelerator. Lastly, CABHI not only says they are startup-centric, but they lived up to that in their interactions with iGuard.”
CEO & Founder, Hyivy
“The MC2 program from CAHBI came at an important time for Hyivy at a stage where we were ramping up manufacturing, regulatory, clinical trials, and growing our company. They have provided connections, resources, advice, and a handful of opportunities to help us continue on the path of success”
Founder & CEO, IRegained Inc.
“IRegained Inc. benefited enormously from the MC2 Capital program offered by CABHI. In addition to funding, access to CABHI’s network of mentors and advisors continues to play a significant role in our business development and go-to-market strategies. CABHI’s staff are always accessible and have supported us throughout this journey. I would strongly recommend CABHI to all start-ups operating in this space”
CEO & Co-Founder, Welbi
“CABHI and the MC2 Capital program have opened important doors for Welbi. Their large network in the senior living industry has allowed us to accelerate our growth. The CABHI team is always there for us, ready to help, and we are grateful to be part of their portfolio.”
Founder & CEO, Cosm Medical
“CABHI’s MC2 Capital program has been great. We worked together with CABHI on projects including value framework, health economics, and non-dilutive grant funding. I would recommend CABHI to any healthtech startup looking for a value-added investor!”
Founder & CEO, ManagingLife
“The MC2 Capital program came at a critical time for ManagingLife, allowing us to maintain momentum in our US commercialization and product development roadmaps. The program team and the advisor network were invaluable in terms of the guidance provided and the connections made.”
