ONB Case Study: Bringing RevJet to Canada

[This post is being republished today as a follow-up to last week’s announcement of a new strategic partnership between Opportunities NB (ONB) and TrueNorth. The RevJet story is an excellent example of ONB’s work to bring Silicon Valley to Atlantic Canada. It demonstrates what ONB and its many provincial partners bring to the table in order to create opportunities in Canada for U.S.-based companies.]

In 2014, Silicon Valley-based LifeStreet Media (a leader in global in-app advertising for Apple iOS, Android, and Facebook developers) spun off some of its technology into a new company — RevJet.

Working with Opportunities NB (ONB), and leveraging relationships forged in Silicon Valley’s startup culture, RevJet’s new R&D location for staff from two Ukraine locations was established in New Brunswick, Canada.

This initiative represents the full scope of ONB’s expertise: attraction of a company to New Brunswick; procurement of necessary skilled workers via immigration; and the successful settlement of those workers into their new community.

Learn how ONB coordinated with partners in the private, public, and non-profit sectors to help RevJet establish their new Canadian office.
