He'll cover the startup landscape and the resources that founders can access to test and validate their ideas and build their business cases (for ACOA and others).
Also, Martin will go over the requirements for ACOA funding and some common misconceptions. He will explain what type of company ACOA is looking for, the milestones they have to achieve, and what they need to bring to the table if they want to be seriously considered for funding.
