Make ROI an integral part of your innovation goals

At Mitacs we help you turn ideas into business successes

Innovation costs money

For the managers charged with overseeing a company’s finances, there are numerous expenses to juggle: start-up costs to fund; research and development (R&D) budgets to maintain; resources to allocate; investments to make; investors to guide; and, of course, salaries to pay. And that’s all before their revolutionary new product, service, or technology ever launches.

Mitacs can help

Sound financial planning, investing and funding are three critical functions for any entrepreneur. But finding, accessing, and managing the money they need to develop their ideas, execute their projects and drive innovation can be a challenge.
