Innovative Solutions Canada – 5 New Challenges January 30, 2020 We’re backing risk takers to solve challenges. Are you ready? The Government of Canada is looking for innovators to solve challenges. As the single largest purchaser of Canadian goods and services, the Government of Canada has a unique opportunity to support the growth of Canadian innovators and entrepreneurs. We need you, Canadian small businesses and innovators, to develop novel solutions to these challenges. Through the Innovative Solutions Canada program, we’re partnering with eligible Canadian small businesses and facilitating the early development, testing and validation of prototypes, as well as preparing a pathway to commercialization. If your idea is selected, you could receive up to $150,000 in support to develop a proof of concept. If your proof of concept is approved, you could receive up to $1 million in support to develop a prototype. If the developed innovation solves the Government of Canada’s challenge, we could be your first buyer. Learn about the new challenges here.
