Get connected to our capital network
To grow your company, you need access to capital, and Invest Ottawa can offer advice and direction on how and when to raise money to maximize growth for your company, while avoiding unnecessary dilution for you and your existing shareholders.
“With the help of the Regional Innovation Centre for Ottawa and Eastern Ontario, we received $120,000 in Federal IRAP funding, another $25,000 in seed funding from the Ontario Centres of Excellence and this timely access to funds accelerated our company’s market entry for JetStreamHD by at least six months.”
Grant Hall, CEO, Nuvyyo
Before you try to raise funds, it’s important to determine your investment readiness, what the best capitalization strategy is, and the message your management team needs to articulate to investors. Our business advisors and mentors offer you the expertise, experience and tools to build your funding strategy and provide regular feedback as you make progress.
We regularly work with regional, provincial, national and international investors and when you’re investment-ready, we’ll connect you to our network through preferred introductions. This process is selective, strategic, and handled on an individual basis for each of our portfolio clients.
