Springboard ACOA AIF Collaboration Initiative
December 07th, 2022
The following initiative has developed as a consequence of a deeper engagement between Springboard Members and the ACOA regional offices in Phase 3.
1. To increase the creation and outcome of successful AIF projects (regardless of the lead being institutional or corporate).
2. To increase the creation and outcomes of alternative funded collaborative projects if AIF is not suitable. (e.g. ACOA BDP, NSERC CRD etc.).
Measures of success:
1. Increased number of AIF projects with successful outcomes (i.e. new or enhanced products and services reaching national and international markets with sales revenue returns).
2. Increased number of successful BDP and other funded projects if/as/where AIF is not the best route to project funding.
