SARNIA, ON. September 15, 2023 — TMRRW INC., a prominent local communications and technology firm has achieved a significant milestone by spinning out its first venture company. This incubated project has led to the birth of “Welcome Platform Technologies,” a promising new software company that is set to make waves in the immigration technology industry.
Welcome Platform Technologies is on a mission to transform the way newcomers integrate into their local communities by providing innovative software tools. The company announced today the last day of National Welcome Week, that they have secured substantial funding of $100,000 from VERGE Capital and is now raising additional funding for a half-million-dollar seed round. This capital injection will enable Welcome Platform Technologies to bring its flagship software product to markets across Canada.
It's impossible to overstate the instrumental role Welcome Platform will play in making Southwestern Ontario and at large- Canada a more welcoming home for newcomers. This collaboration embodies our commitment to fostering inclusivity and supporting underrepresented communities in Southwestern Ontario.
At the heart of this remarkable journey lies a groundbreaking Mobile App Building platform and flagship product that has been incubated by TMRRW INC. Liwordson, the Founder of Welcome Platform Technologies and the President of TMRRW INC., says this innovative project was inspired by the needs of newcomers during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Liwordson explains, “The idea was not originally mine. The LIP (Local Immigration Partnership) of Lambton County first brought their concerns for newcomers to my attention in 2020 due to challenges from the pandemic. TMRRW INC. collaborated closely with the LIP to launch the ‘Welcome to Lambton’ app, and during the discovery stage I realized that our solution could benefit millions across the country. However, after talking to several other immigration orgs in Ontario, the cost, maintenance, and expertise presented significant barriers.”
This realization prompted Liwordson and his team to develop an entirely new approach to launching mobile apps and crafted an innovative business model for monetization. The result is Welcome Platform Technologies, which is now weeks away from deploying another Welcome App in a different Ontario community, with several other communities in the pipeline.
Welcome Platform Technologies aims to raise capital with the ultimate goal of welcoming 1 million new Canadians in a seamless, stress-free manner that leads to a positive and prosperous experience in Canada. From a business perspective, Li believes there is an incredible opportunity and encourages interested investors to connect to learn more about the company’s financial prospects.
Welcome Platform’s flagship technology is a human onboarding app designed to assist newcomers in easily getting organized and integrated into their local communities. The company is designing AI features set to roll out next year, making their offering the most comprehensive and accessible resource available to support newcomers nationwide and 24/7 and in their native language (like chatGPT).
