City of Toronto using Fundica API to help Toronto entrepreneurs access funding

Montreal-based Fundica, which helps Canadian businesses find funding opportunities, announced that the City of Toronto has adopted the Fundica Funding API.

The City of Toronto will leverage the Fundica Funding API to help Toronto-based entrepreneurs identify funding programs that address their specific needs. Specifically, entrepreneurs will gain access to relevant and up-to-date grants, tax credits, and other government funding programs.

“Adopting Fundica’s Funding API was a clear way to ease access to a range of funding.”

“We are excited to have the largest city in Canada adopt our Funding API,” said Mike Lee, president of Fundica. “Toronto is working hard to improve access to funding for entrepreneurs, and we’re glad that our intelligent funding discovery, tracking, and matching technology will be able to accelerate this process.”

Fundica said entrepreneurs can access the company’s resources and information about different funding opportunities and incubator programs on Startup Here Toronto.

“Adopting Fundica’s Funding API was a clear way to ease access to a range of funding, and we look forward to doing even more with Fundica to help entrepreneurs in Toronto grow their businesses,” said Chris Rickett, manager of entrepreneurship services with the City of Toronto.

Fundica manages the Fundica Roadshow, which invites 10 startups to pitch to take home a $500,000 equity investment award. This year, FleetOps, Lumen5, and Invivo.AI took home $200,000 each provided by Panache Ventures at the Fundica Roadshow.
