Innovate Inclusion Announces 98K in Funding

Waterloo, September 12, 2019 — Innovate Inclusion, a not for profit that advocates for the economic success of underrepresented entrepreneurs, has received 98K in funding support from the Department of Canadian Heritage. 

The funding will be used to develop a collaborative database that provides organizations and community members comprehensive insights into entrepreneurial programs and resources from across Ontario. 

“Access is one of three pillars that Innovate Inclusion was founded on. Navigating the ecosystem as an underrepresented entrepreneur will be a lot easier when you can access a full list of programs through a searchable database,” says Sarah Juma, Founder of Innovate Inclusion. Program providers will be encouraged to use the directory to inform decisions about future programming while encouraging collaboration. 

Innovate Inclusion will be convening with Ontario-based community organizations that provide services to Black entrepreneurs over the next four months. 

This project is funded by the Government of Canada.
