Grant program provides funding to B.C.-based businesses to create an online shop
The Launch Online Grant program provides funding to B.C.-based businesses to create an online shop and/or improve their e-commerce experience to attract new local customers and expand to new markets. The grant will pay for up to 75% of eligible expenses, up to a maximum of $7,500 per business.
Successful applicants will receive funding within 2-3 weeks of approval and are required to develop or upgrade their online shop within 12 weeks of receiving the grant.
The program supports a rapid response for businesses and is accepting applications from businesses ready to start and finish their online shop within 12 weeks. The funds must be used to hire a BC based company to do the online store development. A.K.A, Pod Creative!
