Springboard Atlantic receives $9.8M federal boost to bring ideas to market

The Government of Canada’s Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency is contributing over $9.8M to support Springboard Atlantic and its postsecondary member institutions.

Springboard Atlantic’s 19 member institutions will contribute an additional $5.2M to the initiative. “Atlantic Canada’s economy thrives when universities and industry work together,” said MP for Halifax Andy Fillmore. “Thanks to this support, more Atlantic Canadian researchers and entrepreneurs will be able to transform their ideas and innovations into successful businesses.”
