The Ontario Chamber of Commerce has released an update to the Export Market Access (EMA) program informing applicants that they will be accepting applications for projects/activities that are completed before April 30, 2017.
Do you have a global mindset but think your company is too small to be an exporter? Well, think again.
Recognizing that some companies naturally have a global mindset early on in their development, the EMA program was established to help small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) access and expand their growth in foreign markets.
Through the EMA program, companies can receive funding of up to 50% for a maximum of $30,000 towards eligible activities including international trade show attendance, development of marketing tools, investment in market research, and participation in foreign bidding projects.
Interested applicants are encouraged to review the new Application Guide, released in January 2017, to ensure that they meet eligibility requirements, or contact our government funding experts directly, for a free consultation.
Join us for an insightful presentation with Canada’s top financial houses servicing the technology sector.
Hosted by MNP, learn about a range of alternate funding options available.

Velocity was created for the purpose of giving students at the University of Waterloo access to resources to turn their innovative ideas into successful start-up businesses. Through Velocity, students at the University of Waterloo are fostered as entrepreneurs through first-hand experience and interaction with successful industry professionals, and are supported with the tools to learn, network, and share ideas with their peers. In 2008, Velocity branched out to create Velocity Residence, which provides an opportunity for University of Waterloo students to engage in their entrepreneurial interests. Students have the opportunity to network with others from a variety of disciplines, and this experience culminates in a one week boot camp where students learn how to solve problems associated with running a business.
Today, Velocity has a total of six interlinked branches: Velocity Residence, Velocity Garage, Velocity Alpha, Velocity Science, Velocity Foundry, and Velocity Fund Finals. These branches support students by giving them funding opportunities, mentorships to help them build their startup businesses, and the equipment necessary to run their start-ups.
