Make ROI an integral part of your organization’s innovation goals

At Mitacs, we help you turn ideas into meaningful action.

Innovation costs money

For managers charged with overseeing the finances at not-for-profit organizations, there are numerous innovation-related expenses to juggle: funding streams to identify; research and development (R&D) budgets to stretch; resources to carefully allocate; and, in most cases, staff salaries to pay. And that’s all before an organization’s revolutionary new initiative ever launches. 

Mitacs can help

Sound financial planning and tapping into much-needed funding are critical functions for any not-for-profit. But finding, accessing, and managing the money you need to develop your ideas, accomplish your mission, and drive innovation can be a challenge.

App helps translate stories in multiple Indigenous languages

Project promotes multilingualism and global literacy while addressing the void of appropriate materials for K-12 students in poorly resourced communities.
