“Funding in hand”

Elizabeth C.
8/1/21

Canada Startups was full of surprises in terms of what they offer. As a business owner, starting a new business, it is a challege by any means. They were quite helpful with the business plan write up process and planning our financial projections. One key aspect they focus a lot on is connecting people with funding agencies. With regards to my business, this means a $12000 wage support grant and a $23000 loan for equipment and renovation. Very helpful and easy going provider.

“CanadaStartups.org Is a waste of time and $$Money$$”

laura z.
2/27/22

Candastartup will answer all questions prior to customers signing up and of course payment. After the signup phase is done - they do NOT return calls to help their clients. Our company has made several attempts to get a company representative talk to us and explain their process with absolutely no success. They bombard you with e-mails regarding your business plan, marketing plan at a Cost... more $$money$$. Our company wasted our time and of course money. Canadastartups is not a viable choice NOT a happy customer!

This portal provides a platform where you can search for funding based on your needs and project status. It is a one stop shop that saves lot of time and effort. I was able to get funding within 4 months and in addition to that it provided me with lot of contacts, networking and information that I can use as I move further along with my startup. The team was helpful throughout the process as well.

At first my experince was very good. Didn't fit with my expert, Darren. We just didn't click. I asked to switch my expert and was given a new one who better understood my plan and goals. I did go through the entire method with low expectations but did manage to secure funds so deserve 5 star for you guys. Thank you

I registered with CanadaStartups.org as a referral from my bank branch manager. I wasn't approved for a loan via bank due to my credit but Canada Startups helped me find multiple government loan options that I applied to that count the business plan over my credit score more. A very helpful tool in funding, especially when u have bad credit and need all the help you can get.

I've been a member for 8 months now I cannot rate this program high enough. The canada staetups platform gives you everything you need to know and the team do all they can. Stop wasting time trying to do this on your own, and see this as a investment in a new life style so you can focus in your business and get funding.

Justin Fletcher was very expert assigned and I must say this guy never sleeps. I work during the day and my nights are free to manage my business, so having the experts there to provide support at odd times of the night was so helpful. Recommended service.

I registered with them in 2018 and they helped me with the startup process and funding. Sadly, my business came to an end with Covid, but had a new busienss idea and have been blessed to have been able to launch it in such a terrible time. Canada Startups helped me with the process and assisted in locating available funding support from the Ontario government.

CanadaStartups experts helped me with the BDC application and applying to Fyturepreneur. A funding search done helped me find a few method that we applied to as well, not before seen on our radar or even considered. Definitely worth the 500 dollars spent on the membership.

Q&A (3)

Answer:

Google "Grant's Canada" for many options. A lot of other companies and websites offer loans or grants and help finding these.

By Mircea F.
Answer:

Not sure what you mean by scam or legit? But I registered, accessed their tools, got help from them and made my business plan with their help. They supported me, guided me and assisted me each step of the way. I suppose that's legit?

By Charlie S.
Answer:

I used 2 different services before joining Canada Startups. One was from the Funding Portal and the other the Grants Centre. Both had terrible customer support, after I paid I had no luck getting any help or trying to find anyone to show me what to do. After I contacted Canada Startups, they answered, they replied and they had support 24/7 so I chose them because they were there and available.
