OTTAWA, ONTARIO — Tehama, a cloud-based SaaS platform that simplifies and secures IT service delivery, today announced that it has been selected for the Canadian Technology Accelerator (CTA) program in New York City which runs from March to June 2019.
The Digital Technology Accelerator connects Canadian tech entrepreneurs to clients, strategic partners and investors. The five-month immersive program supports high-potential, digital B2B companies as they expand their business to the New York and the U.S. market.
“We’re pleased to welcome Tehama to the CTA program in New York. We’re expecting great things from this impressive group of technology innovators and proud to support them in achieving their business goals,” says Joshua Kleyman, Trade Commissioner and Manager for the Canadian Technology Accelerator.
In addition to professional workshops, mentoring sessions, networking opportunities and more, the six companies selected will have a membership at Grand Central Tech, a co-working facility located in the heart of Manhattan’s “Silicon Alley” where over 500 tech companies are located within a five-block radius.
“We’re honoured that Tehama has been chosen as one of the six new Canadian businesses for the Spring CTA program in New York. The team is looking forward to collaborating with the entire group and building strong relationships with potential partners, investors, and prospects in New York,” said Tehama SVP, Gene Villeneuve.
Based in Ottawa, Tehama is a business unit of Pythian, a global IT product and services company. Tehama is the leading cloud-based platform to onboard, manage, scale, secure, and audit global and remote teams (employees and third-party IT service providers). Tehama is a secure, SOC 2 Type II, SaaS solution that provides everything an organization needs to leverage a global workforce. With Tehama businesses can securely connect and collaborate with remote employees and third parties with deep forensic auditing and compliance and launch “ready-to-work” (Tehama Rooms), complete and productive work environments (Microsoft Windows and Linux virtual desktops) — in minutes not months.

For buyers and sellers of IT services, the other problem is access to global talent. With Tehama, organizations can securely engage IT consulting talent, no matter where they are in the world.
