“Before you start applying to grant programs, spend some time learning about how the system works and speak to other entrepreneurs who have been through this before”.


In this week’s episode of the #StartupCanadaPodcast, sponsored by Mastercard, Jeremy O’Krafka walks us through the often tiring and frustrating process of grant writing and applying for funding while reminding us that there can be great rewards and accelerations that come afterward.
