How to get started with the CDAP program:
Book a Call
Schedule an intro call with MEIRA to discuss your needs and how the CDAP project can be approached.
The next step is applying for your grant. You can see the details (including eligibility requirements) and start your application here.
Once you've been approved, you'll review the list of approved Digital Advisors, including MEIRA.
Our approach to CDAP:
1. Uncover your goals
We start by discovering what makes you unique and learning about the nuts and bolts of your company. Through easy-to-use templates and handy guides, you'll provide info on everything from your operational health and cybersecurity practices to your marketing strategy!
2. Assess the current state
We look through each area of your business to understand the challenges you want to ease and the bright spots you want to leverage.
Our assessment identifies gaps and the underlying challenges, whether that is process, training, or technology (because we know that tech isn't a magic bullet).
3. Review recommendations
We walk through the options that bridge the gap between your business today and the future you've designed with us, including process, training, and technology.
We provide a shortlist of technology options that includes pros, cons, and careful consideration so you can make informed decisions for your business.
4. Chart a course forward
Once we’ve agreed on the future state, we provide a detailed plan on how to make it happen.
This roadmap will include considerations like scheduling, budget, major activities, and potential risks so that you get the most out of your investment.
5. Submit your report to CDAP
Once the report is complete, you'll submit your report and Meira invoices through the CDAP portal. You can then apply to BDC unlock an interest-free loan of up to $100k to support the implementation of the plan.
6. See your roadmap come to life
The technology roadmap will guide you through every single step needed to bring the future state of your business to life.
