Access to capital, networks, and mentors are key factors enabling companies to grow faster and scale their operations. The Lazaridis Institute and Boast have partnered to create this access for the next generation of Canada’s tech entrepreneurs.
Each year, the Lazaridis Institute brings together a cohort of Canada’s most promising growth-stage technology companies in ScaleUp, a 12-month program built on a global network of expert mentors. Now, ScaleUp companies will gain access to Boast.AI’s tax incentive technology to help identify, claim, and finance Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax credits and government incentives. In addition, ScaleUp companies will benefit by connecting with Boast’s non-profit community, Traction, and its 110,000 members—the world’s largest community of innovators.
“This partnership will provide ScaleUp participants access to more SR&ED tax incentives—non-dilutive funding—through Boast.AI’s solutions,” said Kim Morouney, managing director of the Lazaridis Institute and professor of Executive Development in the Lazaridis School of Business & Economics at Laurier.
