A brief look into our successful past and predictable future
When an Ontario Food Processor was looking to purchase a series of high-tech meat processing equipment to modernize their 25 year old facility, they weren’t sure where they were going to find the money. BIG sat down and helped them create a personalized funding plan that allowed them to receive more than $300,000 across multiple grant programs including Growing Forward 2 and CME Smart. Now, they’re continuing to grow, building a brand new, multi-million dollar facility.
With a facility already built, this southern Ontario manufacturer was looking for a way to help fill their building with the latest toys. Working together, BIG helped this company receive more than half a million dollars as a grant for these capital costs through SWODF and identified additional funding opportunities for their product and process improvement. As such, they’re now moving into the US market and taking on large-scale clients.
Hiring programs are a great way for companies to grow their business. BIG worked with a biotech and health sciences company to find grant funding for 4 new hires, all recent graduates of Canadian kinesiology or biology programs. The company received a 50% subsidy for their wages through an $80,000 grant with the Biotalent CareerFocus hiring program.
