While Round 1 Recipients are successfully working on their projects, we are thrilled to announce the eight new Round 2 Recipients of Innovation Guelph’s Fuel Injection Seed Funding Program*!
* Fuel Injection is IG’s first seed funding program – providing grants for both start-ups and SMEs throughout Southern Ontario.
Chosen for their innovative project plans, eight companies were selected from over 60 applications to receive up to $30,000 in matching seed fund monies and to partake in an extensive mentorship program with IG (see list of companies below). The competition was fierce; each recipient illustrated exciting opportunities for facilitating growth, amplifying opportunity and increasing revenue within the region and beyond. Their applications, plans and supporting documentation showed excellent promise for successful project outcomes.
This round’s projects range from: an innovative drug adherence medical device; a disruptive refrigeration defrost/de-icing technology; a device that controls climate & power requirements while shutting off the vehicle’s engine; a creative chemical-free solution for Craft Brewers’ wastewater; an urban farm expanding to recipe/meal preparation & grocery delivery service; an expansion and scaling of an award-winning hard cider-making company; a unique new biodegradable specialty fine tea sachet; and last – but not least – the expansion & atmosphere creation of a community supported comedy & improv. centre. So exciting!
We welcome you to review the list of the recipients below and visit their websites to find out more about IG’s Fuel Injection companies and how they are (and will continue to) improve the world around us.
If you are interested in applying for future Fuel Injection Seed Funding opportunities, please note: next open call will be in the Spring of 2017.
