Funding Opportunities

Laurier Startup Fund

The Laurier Startup Fund is a student-run investment fund. The startup fund only considers funding startups that come to it through the Golden Triangle Angel Network and the MaRS Investment Accelerator Fund. Laurier startups must go through these to be considered.

AC JumpStart

Funded by FedDev Ontario and delivered through the Accelerator Centre in partnership with Laurier’s Schlegel Centre for Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation, AC JumpStart provides early-stage startups with the seed capital, mentorship and market-readiness tools needed to build their ventures. A select number of grants are reserved exclusively for members of the Laurier community.

LaunchPad National Bank Grant

Through generous support provided by the National Bank of Canada, the Schlegel Centre for Entrepreneurship awards up to thirty National Bank Grants to LaunchPad ventures each year. National Bank Grants provide qualifying LaunchPad ventures with financial support to help with costs related to startup and/or scaling.

For the 2016/17 awards year, the deadline to apply is Jan. 31, 2017.
