Capital Investment & Technology Adoption Funding

Capital & Tech Adoption Grant, Loan, and Funding Programs Mentor Works Can Write for Your Business.

Capital investment funding is available to support Canadian business’ focused technology and software adoption projects. As opposed to business expansion funding, which generally focuses on larger expansion projects that are completed over multiple phases, capital investment grants and loans tend to support specific spends that are directly attributable to improved business performance. Companies can access technology funding programs at both the federal and provincial level to offset project costs, which enables firms to purchase innovative technologies sooner than would’ve been possible by only using cashflows.

Canadian Capital Investment & Technology Adoption Resources

To be successful over a long period of time, Canadian firms must continuously invest in operations. Purchasing technology and other assets can have immediate and sustained benefits that directly impact competitiveness, yet few companies have a defined plan for these investments. Forward-looking, proactive companies can continuously improve and offer better products/services to customers through internal investments, which makes planning and execution of investments so important.

What types of investments is your company making? Find resources to support your upcoming capital investment and technology adoption projects by choosing one of the following options:

Capital Investment Resources

Business investments that stimulate long-term competitiveness improvements are a focal point for government funding programs. Companies often encounter investment decisions where upfront costs must be considered relative to its long-term impact, with high return-on-investment (ROI) projects becoming the most urgent or prioritized. Government grants and loans can be used to strategically offset these costs and improve the financial return of capital investments. Explore the resources below to understand where capital investment fits in your growth plans and develop a strategy for success:

Technology Adoption Resources

Technology is improving at a exponential rate and Canadian companies need to continuously invest in innovations to improve productivity and remain competitive with other global firms. Not only can new technology help complete current tasks in less time and with greater accuracy, but it can also enable new processes that opens your company to new customers and revenue streams. Fortunately, there are many technology funding programs available for Canadian companies to use that reduce the upfront investment costs of innovative equipment. Explore the resources below to understand where technology adoption fits in your growth plans and develop a strategy for success:
