What kinds of grants can I get from the Canadian government for my start up?
I’m currently building an app and need a grant to help with the development phase. I would need a grant that can help with initial funding and making traction. I have done some initial research and I’ve noticed that there is a small business grant of $ 5000?
I want to validate that : – there is a real problem “X” for – a potential users “K” and consequently open a channel with the them. Can a blog helps with this? (Start a blog from 0) I was thinking that a Blog talking specifically to a problem X can help me filter people who actually care about it or they have the same problem/state of mind, and for so it would grow my chance to yes, understand if the problem really exist, but also identifies the potential users, if any.
A few months ago A freind and Myself began work on a startup idea i had, we are beginning to think about PR and Media (as this is key to the project). I Hate attention and highly value my privacy in everyway, My Co founder (My friend) Who knows over 35% of the company has offered to do the interviews etc, however i am worried that my fear of interviews and attention will cause us problems, For example: Once the dust clears and we sit down with our laywers and go though the paper work, He will be COO, I will be CEO as it was my idea, Thus, I want to control the overall direction of the company (I'm also the developer). But will it not be werid for the COO and Co Founder to do all of our interviews and will it cause a problem?
