Date: Wednesday, September 18, 2019
Time: 9:00am - 9:45am ET
Location: Online Webinar via GoToWebinar

Canadian manufacturers can access a broad spectrum of government grants and loans to offset strategic growth project costs. In fact, Canadian government funding for manufacturers tends to be more widely available than for any other industry segment, making industrial companies well-aligned to access financial incentives.

Because of this, Canada's vast supply of manufacturers should explore opportunities to scale operations, become more productive, and improve worker skills to support tech innovation.

During the Top Tech & Government Funding to Support Manufacturers webinar, Rami Kaawach, Commercial Director at Info-Tech Research Group, and Sales Director Joel White, will join Mentor Works. Info-Tech will share with attendees the importance of maintaining a strong Information Technology Governance Structure necessary to surviving a technology-dominated world. Learn how to manage and leverage your data and Information Technology initiatives to drive your company forward. Does it make sense to go to the cloud? Are vendors in control of your business? Are your Disaster Recovery Plans meeting best practices? Mentor Works will follow with a deep dive into government funding to support tech adoption.
