On Wednesday, April 06th, Women of Influence in partnership with Cisco for Small Business and the Grants Office, present an incredible opportunity for entrepreneurs across the country to unlock an untapped resource for funding their start-up ventures. Securing the capital to bring your new and innovative ideas into reality is one of the biggest challenges business owners face.

And while the Government of Canada has made several grant programs available for entrepreneurs across the country, women are not well represented in the competitive funding environment (only 15.6% of SMEs are owned by women in Canada), and it can be difficult to sort through those programs and identify best-fit opportunities. In addition, many business owners lack experienced grant professionals who can advise them on funding sources that might support their projects.

With all these barriers, there remains a wealth of untapped grant capital available waiting for women entrepreneurs to claim it. With a robust strategy and the right support, you can improve your grant-seeking process and successfully unlock a new revenue source for your company.

In this critical informational session designed for the Women of Influence community of entrepreneurs, the most extensive network of its kind in the country, the Grants Office will pull back the curtain on grant funding and share:

  • A concise overview of the grant funding landscape
  • Targeted programs that can help women entrepreneurs stay competitive and keep their businesses operating despite recent challenges
  • Common proposal elements you can prepare ahead of time
  • Strategic and proven tips for writing a successful grant proposal

If you are keen on getting better positioned to attain grant funding this year, be sure to set this hour aside and join us for an empowering community session that will help move your business forward.
