TechAlliance of Southwestern Ontario is delivering the Government of Canada supported i.d.e.a. Fund in Lambton County which may provide access to funding for area businesses. The Fund is a southwestern Ontario-focused initiative to accelerate the growth of high-potential small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in key sectors linked to the green economy, including agri-innovation, clean tech and advanced manufacturing.
The Fund provides essential resources like the mentoring and early-stage financing necessary for SMEs to scale-up, create quality jobs for Canadians, and drive green and resilient economic growth across the region.
Eligible SMEs in Lambton County can apply and, if selected, will be provided with advisory services and non-repayable contributions of up to $30,000, giving them the working capital needed to support commercialization efforts and growth.
Please contact the Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership or TechAlliance to learn more about the program.
Applications are officially open now and until June 7th.
