Green innovation: How do you grow your business?

March 7, 2011 - Tags: Innovation Technology

If you are the owner of a high-growth clean technology or information and communications technology business, finding capital can be a challenge. But, there are government programs available that can help you find the investors you need to help your business grow and compete in the global market.

If you are based in Ontario, you could be eligible for the Ontario Emerging Technologies Fund if your business is in one of the following industries:

  • Clean technology
  • Life sciences and advanced health technology
  • Digital media and information and communications technology

Eligible companies can receive up to $50 million over 5 years from this direct investment fund. The fund can also provide extra capital funding for your business in the form of a co-investment, along with funds already available from investors.

You can approach any one of the Qualified Investors with your investment opportunity. Once you enter into an agreement, investors can make a co-investment proposal to the Ontario Capital Growth Corporation.

For more information, contact the Ontario Capital Growth Corporation. To learn more about other innovation support programs for your business, visit our Innovation section.
