#StartupChats – Applying for Funding: Public, Private, Grants and Loans

About This Event

Passion may fuel your business, but unfortunately, it won’t fund it. It’s time to take a look at funding and how to acquire it for your business. From public funding, private investments to grants and loans, it’s time to talk about funding your business.

Join Startup Canada (@Startup_Canada) and Intuit Quickbooks (@QuickbooksCA) on February 20th for a live #StartupChats on Twitter from 12pm – 1pm ET – we’ll be learning about applying for funding for your business.
