Innovation Canada – A one Stop Shop for Innovators and Entrepreneurs
Join Jennifer Lopes, Senior Communications Advisor of Innovation Canada as she explains what Innovation Canada is and how their Digital Platform makes it simple and fun for innovators and entrepreneurs to find funding, loans, grants, wage subsidies and support services.
From providing funding to giving expert advice to driving new collaborations, many levels of government offer a wide variety of programs and services designed to help businesses innovate, create jobs and grow Canada’s economy. But if you can’t find them, you can’t take advantage of them.
That is why the Government of Canada created Innovation Canada, a one-stop-shop for Canada’s innovators and entrepreneurs.
Innovation Canada’s digital platform makes it simple—fun, even—for entrepreneurs to get “matched” with the right government programs and services.
And it’s not only federal programs; the platform brings together support from provincial and territorial governments in Canada too.
- Fast. In less than two minutes, the AI-enhanced algorithm can zero in on your best options from over 1,000 programs and services.
- Free. And available any time you are.
- Simple. The information for each program is summarized in plain language.
- Smart. The platform is enhanced with AI, which helps drive more relevant matches.
- Comprehensive. Funding, loans, tax credits, wage subsidies, interns, expert advice, collaboration, and more.
And new features are being added. In early 2019 you’ll be able to create a profile, save your favorites, and be notified of new opportunities to help your business grow.
