Financing & grants

Financing

Startups need funding at critical moments in their development. They must pay particular attention to prototyping their business solution, which can be very expensive. These companies must be able to build their technology before they can successfully approach investors and potential buyers. This critical phase of modeling their idea can be very costly for some startups. This is why we launched Fi-Lancement, to facilitate the growth of innovative business solutions.

 

Fast Track

The Fast Track process is, as the name implies, a fast track to acquire the $20,000 Futurepreneur loan! Our Startups qualify for the loan and can get it in just one week during the prototype phase of our programs.

Building the future has never been easier!

Fi-lancement

Fi-Lancement facilitates the access to a micro-loan from MicroEntreprendre Outaouais of up to $5000 for members incubated in the prototyping phase of our programs.
