Boost Your Juice With $100,000
Support for Health Related Nutrition
Canada’s Innovation Booster program is advertising 50% grant funding up to $100,000 for business development and innovation projects focused on “Personalized Nutrition and Improving Human Health Through Food”.
Projects are expected to result in the discovery of new knowledge that aims to support the development of new technology-driven products, processes or services at early-stage TRLs (e.g., 1-4); and/or large-scale technology demonstration, including the advancement and development of new technologies into product-specific applications at TRLs 5-7. Projects undertaking higher TRLs (i.e., 8 and 9) may also be supported if part of the overall project.
Eligible expenses include, but not limited to project-related equipment purchases, subcontractor and consultant fees, materials costs, direct labour, plus building and land leasing, expansion or upgrades. Applicants must be a Canadian business with less than 500 employees and sales under $50 million.
Note that successful applicants must pay the organization administering the fund an upfront contingency fee of 5% against the entire project budget (so basically the funding is 40%). Next Intake begins May 29, 2023, with a deadline of June 26, 2023.
