What will it take for your business to become more successful or more profitable or to increase its productivity? We may be able to provide you with a grant to help you achieve that goal. The Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP) is a federally funded program that provides up to 50% reimbursement for eligible projects. What have our clients used these funds for?
- Purchase of specialized equipment – a client invested in a new piece of equipment that has resulted in the creation of a new product line and a positive impact on their bottom line within 6 months
- Hiring expertise – one client hired a marketing strategist and the result has been a significant increase in sales
- Trade shows – a number of clients have reached new markets and customers by exhibiting at trade shows
- Skills training – a couple of clients have benefited from training on how to enter into the US market place and are now making sales there, while others have learned skills to add new services to their business
