Boast Capital will be hosting a SR&ED Seminar at Innovate Calgary on Wednesday, April 4th from 7:30-9:30am to discuss changes to the SR&ED program arising from the new federal budget. The seminar will be presented by Alex Popa, Partner at Boast Capital, and Paul Cataford, Associate Partner at Espresso Capital, a SR&ED financing firm and CEO of Zephyr Sleep Technologies, a medical devices company.
Canada is one of the most generous countries in funding research, innovation, and experimentation, providing approximately $7 billion annually to over 30,000 companies. Over $4.5 billion of this funding pool is provided under the SR&ED program.
As a part of the Federal Budget on March 29th, 2012, significant changes are expected to the SR&ED program. This seminar will provide a comprehensive view of the program, will discuss potential changes and their impact on claimants, and review other government funding initiatives.
