A comprehensive approach to funding innovation and growth

Canadian governments have long been active in supporting technology risk for early stage technologies. However, until recently they have been less supportive in grant funding for global scaling. Strategies to take a proven technology and rapidly scaling it globally requires funding for research, global market development, hiring and training as well as growth capital to enter markets effectively. This stage of growth is a challenge for funding, and is particularly problematic for Canadian companies seeking growth into global markets. Funding is now available to support the business risk associated with these strategies.

Government incentives are available to a broad range of industries, size structure and stages of companies. BDO’s combination of technical and business industry expertise helps our clients access direct funding for business expansions, capital acquisitions, growth strategies and the adoption of new technologies. We also work with our clients to access incentives for hiring & training, sustainability projects and export market development initiatives to support their investment in future growth.

We help organizations establish a road map to direct funding to assist them through their critical stages of growth. Our comprehensive approach to accessing these funding programs begins with a strategic planning session followed by the creation of plan milestones, funding plan, funding road map and report, and annual update sessions. BDO’s established relationships with industry associations, and government agencies ensures that we are providing our clients with the latest information on funding opportunities.
