Our guidance will help you set up a relationship with a Designated Organization (Incubator, Angel group or a Venture Capitalist group). Designated organizations are business groups that have been approved by the Canadian Government to invest in or support possible start-ups.
Canadian Government Approved Organizations choose which business proposals to review. If one decides to review yours, it will assess the potential of your proposal and whether or not it will succeed. Each organization has its own intake process for proposals and criteria used to assess them. Our job is to help you present the proposal in the way that the designated organizations like to receive them for the maximum chances of acceptance.
If an organization chooses to support your business idea, it will give you a Letter of Support.
To apply for the Start-up Visa Program, your business idea or venture must get the support of one of the designated organizations, please contact us.
