Event description

Description

Are you a business owner or employee with a desire to improve your business's efficiency or sustainability? Implementing improvements in equipment or processes to make them more efficient, more sustainable or simply more cost effective, can be expensive. But funding is available! There are a variety of programs that exist to help businesses like yours.

Do you want to know more about these funding sources? Or maybe you've heard about potential funding, but the application process doesn't seem clear or you don't have the resources to do the research and find the opportunities that are right for you? Don't worry - Sustainable Hamilton Burlington and the Industry Partnerships Initiative at the Mohawk Centre for Climate Change Management want to help!

Join us in the Cafe Annex of the beautiful Royal Botanical Gardens on the morning of April 26th to make the The Funding Connection:

  • Understand the field of funding support - where does the money come from? What's the logic that decides who gets what support?
  • Find out what funding streams are available
  • Find out what makes for a successful funding ask
  • Look at case studies of successful applications and find out why those applications were successful, so you can make sure yours are too!

We speak to a lot of businesses with an interest in sustainability and one thing we hear consistently is: "We know there's funding available to help us, but we're not sure where to begin?" On April 26th, we're going to help answer that question!
