Financial Relief Programs for the Innovation Economy (Tech Alliance)

May 28 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

The global pandemic has caused widespread disruption, requiring many businesses to pivot and review financing options.

Top industry experts from BDCEDCRBC and Innovation Canada will provide insight into government relief programs, including the new RRRF – Regional Relief Recovery Fund, to supplement other federal relief measures and to address gaps for SMEs who did not qualify or who are experiencing ongoing funding needs.

To quickly mobilize immediate support to the tech sector, our panel will give options for SMEs and global organizations dealing with international customers and suppliers on how to cover your operating costs, when to engage your financial institution, and what priorities you should focus on now with guidance for the next 24 months.

This webcast will review the right financing options specific for your business along with takeaway resources to emerge strong in recovery, while mitigating risk.

Topics will include:

  • Government relief programs
  • Tax credits
  • Financial resources
  • Strategies and tactics on debt vs. venture capital equity
  • Bridge financing, working capital loans and guarantee programs
  • Trends and shifts to business models in the tech industry
  • How to manage supply chain risks

The second half of the webinar will be dedicated to answering your questions. This is an opportunity to ask questions directly, so come prepared. We will be accepting questions live, but please feel free to ask questions in advance.
