Innovacorp Update / Cash and Expertise for Nova Scotia Start-Ups

Innovacorp worked hard this summer on these exciting opportunities to help Nova Scotia technology companies accelerate commercialization of new innovative products.

Instead of polluting your inbox with a different email for each of our 17 new programs – just kidding, there’s only seven – we thought it would be best to just send one, highlighting what’s on the go this fall.

New this year is the Blue Solutions Start-Up Challenge, a competition to find innovative solutions to problems in the ocean sector. First round finalists receive up to $10,000 and guidance from seasoned business professionals. Round two finalists receive up to $50,000. Awards are intended for the establishment and/or future development of the start-up.

Ocean Technology Programs

Our Demo at Sea Program lets companies demonstrate pre-commercial ocean technologies in a real-life setting (i.e., the ocean). Our Early Adopter Program provides companies with up to $20,000 each towards the first deployment and testing of an ocean technology product with an early adopter customer. And our OceanTech Development Program provides companies with up to $20,000 each to address short-term milestones in their technology development plan.

CleanTech Accelerate Program

The CleanTech Accelerate Program helps Nova Scotia blue and green technology companies get investment ready. Participants receive up to $50,000 per company to address key technical and business milestones.

MedTech Accelerate Program

The MedTech Accelerate Program helps Nova Scotia life sciences companies developing medical technologies get investment ready. Participants receive up to $50,000 per company to address key technical and business milestones.

Spark Innovation Challenge

We’re looking for the best early stage technology companies in Nova Scotia. Ignite your ideas with our Spark Innovation Challenge, newly expanded across the province this year. You could win up to $50,000 and guidance from seasoned business professionals to put your idea into action.

Please note: there are different deadlines, eligibility criteria and application processes for all of these opportunities.  

Tell your friends about these exciting opportunities! All seven.
