Let Mentor Works help you discover Canadian government grants and loans 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 across Ontario including Eastern Ontario small businesses, Northern Ontario businesses, Southern Ontario small businesses, and Toronto and GTA small businesses.
Mentor Works has compiled the best organizational tools and resources to research government grants and loans options to serve small businesses in Eastern and Western Ontario. Through her presentation, she will share her knowledge with you. The government grants & loans 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. You will learn how to take the mystery out of how funding mechanisms work, the on-line application process, eligibility factors, the funding cycle, and more. You will also learn what the experts know about government funding and business support resources and how to keep it simple.
