New Partnership Between Futurpreneur Canada and Fondation Montréal inc.

23 April 2018

$15,000 in fast-track financing for startups

 

Montréal - Futurpreneur Canada (Futurpreneur) and Fondation Montréal inc. (Montréal inc.) are joining forces to accelerate access to startup financing for the foundation’s laureates. Because time is money, businesses awarded a $5,000 to $30,000 grant from Montréal inc. are now eligible for fast‑track financing, enabling them to receive an additional $15,000 in loans, according to the rates, terms and conditions of Futurpreneur.

This agreement ensures the accelerated processing of financing applications and recognizes the foundation’s strength in finding, selecting and supporting Montréal’s best startup projects. Entrepreneurs who prefer to do so can still use the standard process and thus have access to co-financing from the BDC. Montréal inc. will steer the young entrepreneurs to Futurpreneur, either for fast-track financing or for the standard application process, according to each one’s needs.

For more information on Montréal inc.’s fast track to Futurpreneur, please email Montréal inc. at info@montrealinc.ca or call 514-872-8401.

For more information on the standard application for Futurpreneur financing and BDC co-financing, please contact Futurpreneur at 514-225-7035 #4004.
