Our funding experts help you prioritize the most lucrative funding opportunities and minimize your effort involved during the writing process. Clients across Canada typically secure $100K-$220K of funding per 12 month cycle toward 2-3 growth initiatives. Contact us for a free funding evaluation!

For most firms a $100,000 grant has the same bottom line impact as $660K of sales.
