As a recipient of the Canadian government's Innovative Solutions to Homelessness grant, on behalf of my co-founders, I wanted to briefly share an article written by our CEO about how it's helped our startup:
Despite the number of startups globally who are working on issues ranging from sustainability to poverty, social enterprise remains unknown territory for most investors and customers. Accordingly, there are unique challenges in raising money needed to do the prerequisite R&D, sales and marketing activities a startup must to breakthrough.
That is why I can't express how grateful our team is for this program, and how it is helping us explore how best to combine technology, data science, a vast network of national support partners and an increasing number of socially conscious employers in improving vulnerable youth employment outcomes.
