Show Me the Money – Financial Recourses Available To Help Grow Your Business

Friday February 5, 2016, 12noon - 1pm | Milton Education Village Innovation Centre | Partner Lunch & Learn

Join us for an interactive panel presentation and discussion where you will learn about some of the latest government sponsored programs that companies are using to fund and build their businesses.


Mary Balfour, Senior Business Advisor with Ontario Ministry of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure will outline the range of funding programs that are available for established manufacturing and technology companies. This includes financing through the use of grants, contributions, wage subsidies, tax credits and loans. Find out what type of government financing may be available for your business.

Joel Briere, Account Manager with the Business Development Bank of Canada will highlight the innovative financing tools and services that BDC clients use to acquire new equipment and technology, operate their companies and fund their expansions.

Padraic Foley, Business Development Manager, Ontario Centres of Excellence will share an overview of OCE’s programs designed to commercialize innovation through promoting industry-academic collaboration, providing seed funding for young entrepreneurs and taking innovative technologies from an idea to the global marketplace.


Every month the Innovation Centre hosts informal, and free, presentation on a topic of interest to the residents, members and friends of the Centre and the Milton business community. It is being held at the same time as the monthly Silicon Halton Day where Silicon Halton members come to cowork as our guests for the day.  It’s an open-drop in session, and all Milton entrepreneurs are welcome to attend. You bring your lunch, we’ll bring dessert.
