    Let Mentor Works help you discover funding to finance your business. Funding resources are available for small businesses from both the provincial and federal levels of government. The challenge is how to find and take advantage of what is out there. With considerable expertise in government funding, both on a federal and provincial level, Mentor Works has secured government grants for small business as well as low interest loans for small-medium size business owners in Southern Ontario. Mentor Works has compiled the best organizational tools and resources to research government funding options to serve small businesses.

The funding presentation will cover financing trends, the different types of government resources, how to find them, and how to harness these opportunities to fund your business.
