A PERFECT FUNDING STORM! Innovative Solutions Canada – a new SBIR-like program by the Government of Canada – has launched. Through this small business innovation program, 20 federal departments must spend a combined $100M by launching challenges for Canadian SMEs to solve. Innovators who apply can have their proofs of concept funded up to $150K. And if the departments like what they see, they could receive up to $1M in funding to develop a prototype! Innovators keep the IP and departments get their hands on cutting-edge products/services. Budget 2018 announced that the Build in Canada Innovation Program is merging into Innovative Solutions Canada. Come learn more about what that means for Canadian Innovators!
