Replay of Part 1 of the NACO Roundtable on Incubators, Accelerators, and Entrepreneurial Activity

"The Council of Canadian Innovators has determined that the wage subsidy is probably going to help maybe about 25% of their businesses... but the businesses that are being left out right now are all pre-revenue companies" John Ruffolo, Vice Chair at Council of Canadian Innovators

Today is the second instalment in a series of conversations on stimulating angel activity, supporting the innovation ecosystem and ensuring that entrepreneurs have sufficient access to capital to survive the economic effects brought on by the COVID-19 crisis.

Incubators and accelerators play a key role in enabling and supporting entrepreneurial activity. For many small businesses, this early guidance is how entrepreneurs learn the basics of running a company, making vital connections, attracting customers, and scaling up their operations.
