What our clients say
“ When it comes to starting up a business in Canada, I would say hands down that Matrix Ventures are the #1 in the region. What I loved most about Matrix is their commitment, speed and dedication towards their clients. Our entire team never felt that we were clients to them, Mr Devrup Mitra and Mr Abhijit Roy went above and beyond in assisting us with all the requirements. We never encountered an issue during the whole process. They always made sure that we had a smooth transition throughout the journey. If you are serious about Startups, then you need Matrix Venture.“
“It has been a long road since our first meeting with the Matrix team in Dec 2022. We had great pleasure working with the matrix team, especially Abhijit, Devrup and Aniruddh. We know that this was not an easy matter, but was always handled with utmost care and professionalism by the matrix team. You were always easy to reach and available on short notice to fix potential problems and to explain the ongoing process. Thank you very much team Matrix.“
“Matrix Venture helped me in achieving my goal of setting up a business in Canada very efficiently and provided a high quality with their knowledge, expertise, and the connections/affiliations they have in the region.“
“Matrix Ventures has been a beacon of hope in our journey towards moving to Canada for brighter prospects. The entire team has been very supportive at every stage, especially in answering all my panic queries patiently and always responding promptly. Very professional in their approach, yet mindful of the fact that it is a first-time experience for their clients. The prep sessions that we had were rigorous but still inclusive of every member of the team who reside in different time zones. A special shout out to Devrup, Abhijit and Pratap who have been there through the journey. Wishing Matrix the very best for their future.“
“During the first two calls with team matrix, we got a clear view of what the path looked like. Expectations were set and I have to say that the process went seamlessly for us. While Matrix cannot influence the time it takes IRCC to process applications, they have been with us every step of the way keeping us informed on any new development and also holding us accountable to submit all documents promptly. Their due diligence was spot on as we never had any hiccups with our applications. All thanks to Matrix, I am in Canada now and well on my way to laying the foundations to launch our business. I wholeheartedly recommend Matrix to those looking to immigrate to Canada to start their businesses.“
