Innovation Canada

Startup Canada and Innovation Canada are thrilled to be partnering to provide our Community Leaders with helpful resources to support your entrepreneurial ecosystem. I’d like to introduce you to Kate Poirier, the Director of Marketing and Outreach, and Christina McDonald, the Manager of Marketing and Outreach at Innovation Canada (CC’d here). A number of our Leaders participated in the “Your Inside Guide to Government” Webinar in December with Kate and Christina, and we are delighted to provide you with more information about the platform to share with the members of your Startup Community.

  • The platform:  – an easy one-stop-shop where you can find all the federal, provincial and territorial programs – plus a few non-profits too – available to help you achieve your business goals. Get a tailored list of programs for your needs in under 2 minutes, and save your details to get notified if anything new comes up.
  • Marketing shareables: the new external Marketing Shareables site has all the buttons, slides, social media posts and more you need to spread the word about to your colleagues and let them know where to find what they need too.
  • Background: A little more information about Innovation Canada programs and the Innovation Advisors service, including how to reach them (hint: give them a call at 1-833-201-4358 and they can put you in touch when you are ready). Attached you’ll also find a brief article outlining the available services.

Thank you for your continued support in building Canada’s entrepreneurial landscape, and we look forward to hearing how these resources are able to support you and your community!

Atlantic Region Startup Award Winners 2018

Startup Greater Moncton congratulates all the award winners with their achievements. A job well done!

And to all entrepreneurs out there, we would like to echo Lisa Williams’ words, who during the event said: “Entrepreneurship to me, means dream big, start small, but just start!”. 

So, if you haven’t started yet, just start; no matter how small. A lot of small steps still make a big step forward. And if you have already started, keep going!

We hope to see you at our next networking event on July 26 to talk about your journeys and steps. Stay tuned for more information!
