We are proud that Merrill Lynch and PepsiCo are the global founding partners of Lime Connect. These two corporations blazed a trail and realized the value of our work in the days when Lime Connect was not much more than a vision of a future state. We are also proud to have IBM as a global partner sourcing talent in the U.S. and Canada and Google, Goldman Sachs, Bloomberg, JPMorgan Chase & Co., PwC, Unilever and our newest partner Microsoft as partners in the U.S.
In Canada, IBM was instrumental in helping us to expanded on our best in class partnerships with our other Lime Connect Canada founding partners BMO and TD Bank Group. We are excited about our newest partnerships with Bell and CIBC in Canada! As a benefit of their level of partnership commitment, PepsiCo participates in Lime Connect Canada programs as well to tap this pool of talent.
Our partners understand the vast pool of talent that exists in people with disabilities, and we are currently in various stages of partnership discussion with additional best in class corporations that represent new industry career opportunities for Lime Connect candidates.
Lime Connect, and our brand that says partnership is about a fresh approach to being "smart" and not about being "nice," attracts the talented candidates our partners want to see.
