Accessing government funding for the first time might seem daunting without knowing how the process works. If your business is new to the funding landscape, it’s important to understand the different types of funding programs and how to navigate the application process.
Fortunately, Hamilton and GTA-based technology firms can learn more about government funding by attending an upcoming HTC Seminar Series event, presented by the Hamilton Technology Centre.
During the How to Build a Government Funding Plan for Your Business event, attendees will develop an understanding about what government funding is and who it supports, specific government grants and incentives to support technology-based businesses, and how to get started with funding applications. Event participants will form a strategy for how to become eligible for government funding, as well as tap into their first few funding programs.
