Pocketed: Hiring Grants Power Session

July 30, 2024

Hiring Grants Power Session with Pocketed

Welcome to our online event where Jamie Proctor Boyce from Pocketed will dive into the world of funding strategies with Pocketed! Whether you're a startup founder or a seasoned entrepreneur, this event is perfect for anyone looking to take their funding game to the next level.

Money is a leading barrier to innovation and entrepreneurship, especially for women and equity-seeking groups. Pocketed was built to level the playing field, helping Canadian businesses easily access the $5.9B available annually in grants, tax credits, and other incentives. To date, more than 15,000 companies have used Pocketed to apply for over $110M in government funding.

Expanding your team and gaining new talent is crucial if you want to accelerate growth and stay competitive—but it's not always financially feasible. That's where hiring grants come in. By leveraging these grants, you can offset wage costs while reaping the rewards of a larger team and fresh perspectives.

In this session, we share:

  • How these programs work & how to prepare⁠
  • What kind of funding amounts you can expect⁠
  • Eligibility requirements & when to find your candidate⁠
  • How Pocketed can support applications for companies of all stages
