A study by Price Waterhouse Cooper found that close to 50% of the Canadian startups in Canada are not taking advantage of the available funding from the government. The reasons being: 1. Many entrepreneurs are not aware of the funding programs from either BC or federal government; and 2. The task of applying seems unfamiliar and too overwhelming when compared with securing funding from friends and families or private investors.
At The Tribe, we feel that startup entrepreneurs should take advantage of this funding channel and are here to help with advising the right government funding to consider and apply. Through our connections with different government funding agencies, entrepreneurs will be able to talk to the right department(s) and person(s) making the process smoother.
