Compugen and CBD Join Forces to Promote Richmond Hill as Home for International Businesses

Posted November 21 2017 in Announcements

Richmond Hill, Ontario—21 November 2017. Richmond Hill, Ontario-based Compugen Inc. is pleased to announce it has become a Corporate Sponsor of the Richmond Hill Center for Business Development (CBD). The CBD is a not-for profit organization that provides essential business services to international clients seeking global expansion into the North American market and with a specific emphasis on selecting Richmond Hill as a destination point.

“We are in an intense competition with other jurisdictions throughout North America for those high-tech, entrepreneurial businesses that are successful at home and want to take the next step to tap into the Americas market,” said Harry Zarek, President and CEO, Compugen Inc. “Compugen is interested in helping introduce emerging Israeli-based high-tech companies to Canadian customers looking for innovative technologies in IT and security. Simi Grosman and Sam Carmon, principals in the CBD, are looking to share their deep knowledge of the North American business environments and engage other local enterprises in partnerships to make Richmond Hill a compelling draw for biomedical, high-tech and renewable-sector international business. They are engaging the Town of Richmond Hill, the Province of Ontario, and the Federal Government, as well as local businesses, to encourage international success stories to settle here, and I’m thrilled to be able to sponsor them as they provide direct support to those that decide to make Richmond Hill their North American home.”


“The Richmond Hill Center for Business Development provides a new and innovative service that is designed to attract and assist Israeli and other High-Tech companies, to conduct their Business Development & some of their R&D efforts here in Ontario - but with the critical value-add of services that will help take them beyond the R&D phase and into full commercialization resulting in new local job creation and new revenue streams,” said Simi Grosman, Managing Partner at the CBD “Support from sponsors such as Compugen and the Town of Richmond Hill are helping to make this new initiative a reality,” Grosman added.
