McGill Dobson International Pre-seed Funding - 2023 Applications

The McGill Dobson International Pre-seed Funding program application begins with the submission of three documents: an application form, a 5-page startup plan and a short presentation video.

To be considered for the Dobson International Pre-seed Funding Program, your startup must meet ALL of the following criteria:

  • You have successfully completed the McGill X-1 Accelerator Program and/or the McGill Dobson Cup within the last five years (since 2017)
  • Your startup can demonstrate significant milestones achieved, with strong early traction in the form of pre-seed funding and paying customers
  • You are currently pursuing a round of fundraising that is tied to specific measurable business goals and/or have an interest in developing opportunities in the U.S. and in Europe
  • Your startup is incorporated and headquartered in Canada

Please note that the application takes on average 20-30 minutes to complete. If you are logged in as a McGill user, you will be able to save a draft and return to it later.
