SR&ED & Other Government Financing Seminar

The Government Can Be a Great Source of Non-Dilutive Financing for Your Startup!

Financing a startup company for innovation or growth has always been a challenge. However, a plethora of government funding sources helps make Canada an attractive place to start and build a company. Both the federal and provincial governments provide financial support of over $20 billion through various funding programs each year.

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

If you need to extend your runway, consider doing so in a non-dilutive manner by taking advantage of government funding.
