Springboard and Jameson Group Launch Investment Opportunities Pilot Project

Tags:

When investors and market ready entrepreneurs come together, the outcomes can be significant. Time and again we’ve heard about great startup success for those companies who were able to secure necessary funding to move the idea into a commercializable opportunity. The problem tends to be matching the right investors with the right start-up at the right time.

That’s why Springboard Atlantic CEO Chris Mathis and Nova Scotia-based Jameson Group (organizers of Invest Atlantic) CEO Bob Williamson have launched a new pilot program in Atlantic Canada with support from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency(ACOA). It’s called the Atlantic Investment Opportunities Program and its purpose is to help solve the problem of timing and match the right investors with the right start-up at the right time.

The program will identify the best investable opportunities from Atlantic Canada and pair them with identified investors in key target markets. “The program will seek out those best opportunity start-ups that also meet the criteria outlined in the input and feedback we’ve received from potential investors,” says Mathis.

This market-driven pilot program is accepting applications for entry into the programs first cohort now. Click here to find out more about participating in this unique opportunity.
