Ready, Set, Grow: Accelerating the Growth of Canadian technology companies

Are you trying to grow your business by tapping into international markets? Would you like help from a world class partner?

Join us for "Government Assistance: Financing and Risk Management Solutions in trying times", the fourth session in the Ready Set Grow webinar series.

Young technology companies might feel like they are on their own as they try to grow their business. But the Canadian Federal and Provincial Governments have many programs and resources to help Canadian technology companies succeed.

In this session, we will explore the programs available from Export Development Canada (EDC), which provides financing, insurance and bonding solutions to Canadian companies that export goods or services. They help Canadian enterprises, mainly small and mid-sized, manage risk and capitalize on trade opportunities.

Join us to learn about EDC programs and to hear how real Canadian companies are using them to generate success in foreign markets.
