You’re invited to join a Fireside Chat on Tuesday, September 14th from 1:00pm to 2:00pm on the Atlantic Investment Bubble.
To join, please register on Eventbrite and you’ll receive a calendar invitation with the meeting link.
Over the past four months, unprecedented effort has been underway with a regional working group of 22 entrepreneurs, investors, and industry groups to create a renewed call-to-action that builds on the success of the Atlantic Bubble and our regional collaboration in managing the pandemic. We came together with a common goal of seeing our region’s economy emerge stronger from the pandemic than we were before.
Our first call-to-action is for the Atlantic provinces and federal government to collaborate on the creation of an Atlantic Investment Bubble pilot program.
Start-ups and SME’s in Atlantic Canada are looking for ways to recover and grow in a post-COVID environment. To scale their existing business models, they will need to attract capital and the competition for that capital is fierce.
The Atlantic Investment Bubble would see an evolution of the current equity tax credit programs, including the Small Business Investment Tax Credit programs that currently exist in each Atlantic Canadian province, making it available to all residents in Atlantic Canada regardless of which province they decide to invest in. The Atlantic Investment Bubble will grow the pool of capital available to Atlantic Canadian companies and will strengthen our provincial and regional economies in the process.
We hope you can join us for the Fireside Chat to hear from some of the champions behind this initiative. You’ll have a chance to learn more about the proposal, ask questions and find out how you can help make this dream a reality.
A website has also been created on the Atlantic Investment Bubble, which includes a detailed discussion paper. Please check it out, add your name as a supporter, and share with your networks.
