Four Forge companies, Every1Games, GoWrench Auto, Lumago and Zentrela have been accepted into the Ontario Centres of Excellence SmartStart funding program, each receiving $30,000 in funds to help them reach their immediate goals. All Forge applicants successfully received OCE SmartStart funding this quarter.
The SmartStart Seed Fund is an exciting new opportunity for Ontario’s next generation of entrepreneurs to access much-needed funding to take their start-up to the next level. The program provides both seed financing and financing for entrepreneurship skills training to help recipients grow their start-up and make them investment and customer ready. SmartStart is co-funded by the Government of Canada, through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario), and the Government of Ontario, as part of its Ontario Youth Jobs Strategy.
Congratulations to the Every1Games, GoWrench Auto, Lumago and Zentrela teams!
