This Investment Readiness Training is for Kootenay region tech entrepreneurs and startups who require or will soon need funding as they scale their operations. This program will help founders work through an often overwhelming and daunting process to secure financing. While programming will be open to all entrepreneurs in the province, priority will be given to Indigenous, Black, and other racialized entrepreneurs, and startups in rural and remote areas. As well, fifty percent of funding has been dedicated to support and advance entrepreneurs who identify within the intersectional spectrum of womanhood.
How the Investment Readiness Training Program Works:
The Format: There will be nine 2 hour meetings held over 9 weeks, where tech entrepreneurs and founders will meet with industry experts. All sessions will take place from 9:30-11:30 am PST.
Location: Companies can attend the meeting virtually online, with the possibility of in-person attendance at the Nelson Innovation Centre.
