Managing Discussion: Securing a government grant for your small business

While there's no shortage of funding available to small businesses in Canada, there are a number of questions to ask before diving into applications: Do you have a solid business plan? Do you operate in a grant-rich industry? How can you position your business to take advantage of programs that are available?

We hosted a live microbusiness discussion, sponsored by TD Bank, with a focus on strategies for applying and securing business funding from the government.

We were joined by Bernadeen McLeod, founder of Mentor Works, Teri Kirk, president of The Funding Portal Inc. and Eby Heller, farmer and co-founder of Les Champs qui Chantent, an organic farm in Quebec that took advantage of every possible grant and incentive program in the agriculture industry.
