Training & Events

Funding Day 2019


BioScience Association Manitoba is pleased to announce the fourth edition of Funding Day. The full-day event will be held on January 25, 2019, at the Victoria Inn & Convention Centre.

The goal of the Funding Day program is to create a platform that helps businesses, from all industries, develop strategic partnerships, get access to funding and secure the resources they need to grow.

Following the success of previous Funding Day events, the programming for the upcoming Funding Day has been curated in a way that offers greater value and support to participating businesses, industry associations and funders. 

Prior to the January 25th event, an online questionnaire will be sent to all registered participants. At the event, supported by an online questionnaire, participants will meet one-on-one with various funders, investors and service providers in a speed-dating-for-suits type setting.

The 7-minute one-on-one meetings will allow participants to gather valuable information in a timely and efficient manner while facilitating follow-up where appropriate. 

Don't miss this opportunity to get access to the information and resources you need to grow your business!
