Creative Destruction Lab (“CDL”), originated at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, is a nonprofit organization that delivers an objectives-based program for massively scalable, seed-stage, science- and technology-based companies. The CDL program has created billions in equity-value since its inception by targeting companies that have the potential to transform our social, industrial, and economic landscape.
CDL helps innovators transition from science projects to high-growth companies, inviting some of the world’s top, early-stage technology ventures from around the globe for an innovative 9-month program. After a rigorous application and selection process, each CDL site engages senior entrepreneurial leaders, as well as noted scientists, economists, investors, and graduate students in the support of new venture founders with a goal to prepare these founders for seed-stage financing and accelerated growth.
The CDL culture is one that engages a team of brilliant people with significant relationship acumen, a strong sales orientation, an innovative mindset, and a relentless ambition to create the foundation for world-class venture acceleration.
