Free December 5 Waterloo Workshop- Government Funding for Start-ups

When funding growth, start-ups should always look towards non-dilutive funding sources to preserve a larger share of control over the company.

One of the main advantages of situating your start-up in Canada is the plethora of federal and provincial funding programs accessible to start-ups that can total over $20 billion each year.

This workshop will address the SR&ED tax credits, non-repayable grants, and interest-free loans available to early-stage companies, as well as how to structure your company and operations to take advantage of multiple funding opportunities.

Topics covered will include:

  • Introduction to non-dilutive government funding
  • SR&ED Tax Credits
  • Government grants and loans
  • Overlap between funding programs
  • Structuring to take advantage of funding

This educational workshop will preceed GTAN|RAW, a monthly event held by the Golden Triangle Angel Network (GTAN), where entrepreneurs that are considering raising funds from Angels and Venture Capitalists have an opportunity to present their pitch to several members of GTAN, who will offer feedback and suggestions.

NorthSpring Capital Partners Co-founder named GTAN’s Angel of the Year

Our warmest congratulations to Brian Hunter, co-founder of our sister company Northspring Capital Partners, for receiving the distinguished Golden Triangle Angel Network’s Angel of the Year award!

We extend our congratulations to Top Hat for receiving the prestigious Company of the Year award and to David Benton Leong, recipient of the Borges Community Builder of the Year award!

The Golden Triangle Angel Network held its 6th annual Pauli Awards on Tuesday June 20th night at Bingemans Conference Centre in Kitchener, celebrating seven years of unprecedented success for it’s members and the community. The Pauli Awards recognize leading contributors of local tech investments and celebrate GTAN’s success including over $35M in capital committed by Angel investors, thereby infusing over $62M of capital into local, early-stage companies.

Brian has over 35 years of experience in providing debt and equity financing to private and publicly held businesses in Southern Ontario. Having began his career with Canada’s leading private merchant bank, Roynat Capital, Brian later became Director and District Manager of the Kitchener office and has assisted hundreds of entrepreneurs with long term capital needs.

In 2009 Brian and Sol Algranti co-founded NorthSpring Capital Partners, a private equity fund that is focused on contributing to the growth of the next generation of great Canadian companies by providing risk capital to both traditional industry companies, such as manufacturers and distributors, and early stage technology company startups. NorthSpring Capital Partners recently announced investments in five high growth companies located in the Toronto-Waterloo technology corridor.
