Unique challenges for not-for-profits

There are many challenges facing not-for-profit organizations when they launch new research or innovation initiatives, not the least of which is finding and recruiting the first-rate expertise needed to take an idea from concept to completion. Tapping into top talent can also be a drain on an organization’s budget, requiring careful financial consideration — without enough funding, attracting and retaining researchers can be difficult.

Thankfully, universities and college campuses across the country are filled with highly skilled research talent, and Mitacs has an extensive network of connections within Canada’s innovation ecosystem, which can help not-for-profits achieve their mission — as well as funding opportunities to assist in optimizing already-stretched budgets.
