What is Fuel Injection
The Innovation Guelph Fuel Injection Seed Funding Program supports business scale-up projects of start-ups and small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) located in southern Ontario. Fuel Injection facilitates enterprise growth through generation of new jobs & revenue; attraction of follow-on private investment; the launch of new products or services; and cost savings through energy, water or waste innovations. Through this program, Innovation Guelph provides specialized industry business advisory services and seed funding to innovative enterprises in the following sectors: manufacturing; sustainable technologies; agriculture/agri-food; and social innovation.
Innovation Guelph’s Fuel Injection program provides seed funding on a one-to-one matching basis up to a maximum of $30,000, and provides support services including mentoring/coaching, market and competitive analysis, financial and marketing strategy, investment preparation, and introductions to strategic partners.
