WHERE FOUNDERS & FUNDERS UNITE TO EXPLORE NON-DILUTIVE FUNDING FOR ATLANTIC CANADIAN COMPANIES
Startups to mid-stage founders will have the opportunity to hear from and meet Canada’s non-dilutive funders. You’ll discover new options to leverage non-dilutive funding while continuing to work with angel, VC investors and other equity based funders.
This year Invest Atlantic celebrates its 10th anniversary by introducing Funding for Founders. After touring the four Atlantic provinces making it a true pan Atlantic event we are pleased to be back in Halifax this year. Over 2,000 startups, investors, service providers, mentors, researchers and entrepreneurial minded students have attended with over 560 companies funded.
Now it’s time to build on that with a new wave of funding using a balanced approach to dilutive and non-dilutive financing. In collaboration they can achieve impactful outcomes for founders, shareholders & funders alike.
