Seminar: The Government Can Be a Source of Non-Dilutive Financing for Your Startup

Aird and Berlis poster for Nov 2016 seminar

Financing a startup company for innovation or growth has always been a challenge for many in Canada. However, what we lack in VCs is made up for by our plethora of government funding sources. Both the federal and provincial governments provide financial support through over $20 billion in various funding programs each year. If you need to extend your runway, consider doing so in a non-dilutive manner by taking advantage of government funding.

Join us to learn about how sourcing funding from SR&ED tax credits, non-repayable grants and interest-free loans can give early-stage companies the edge they need to finance growth. This seminar will cover the following topics:

  • Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax credits
  • Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) funding
  • Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) funding
  • Federal Development Investing in Business Innovation (IBI) loans
  • Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) support
  • Structuring your company to take advantage of Canadian funding opportunities
