L-Spark “Support For Your StartUp” Event Stars Financial Tools For Savvy Founders

With $16.4M in funding across 35 startups in the last three years, The L-Spark Accelerator is no stranger to helping Canadian founders find success. Among the team’s many trade secrets is its advocacy for the growth assistance programs offered by the Government of Canada and its partner NGOs.

To help raise awareness of these programs, L-Spark teamed up with Welch LLP to host “Support For Your StartUp” last Wednesday. The event’s massive panel was led by well-versed government program officials and NGO startup advocates, including…

The discussion centered around founder Terri Storey and her company SnapClarity, which allows Canadians to find and access mental health professionals from a smartphone. Thanks in part to the programs available, SnapClarity is now making great strides towards its goal of tapping into the $50B market opportunity in mental health and wellness.

The panel highlighted dozens of programs for non-repayable funding, recruiting assistance, and market research designed to accelerate the growth of Canadian startups.

It was a valuable event, and a full recording of the discussion is now available online. You can also check out more upcoming events and useful content on L-Spark’s website.
