Description

The COIL Activate Circular Accelerator is designed to help innovative companies grow and scale their circular economy businesses, products and solutions. Through mentorship, education and with links into a national and global circular economy (CE) network, we are building the next generation of Canada’s CE business leaders.

With the support of the CE iHub, industry-leading mentors, and the broader COIL circular economy ecosystem, you will take on a circular project over the course of 6 months to further your business’ circularity. Businesses can apply with projects between $5,000 and $20,000 that have a focus on food and environment. COIL Activate businesses will benefit from access to world-class circular economy training that is specially crafted to unlock each business’ potential to reduce waste and reach new markets. It is designed to help companies launch circular projects to change the way we do business through circular business practices. Although there is no revenue requirement, it is recommended that businesses apply for funding relative to their annual revenue as following: 

  • $0-$50,000 revenue = $5,000 grant

  • $50,000-$100,000 revenue = up to a $10,000 grant

  • $100,00 - $150,000 revenue = up to a $15,000 grant

  • $150,000+ revenue = up to a $20,000 grant

However, if your business has a significant track record of growth, financial stability, and/or a strong project proposal, you may apply for any amount of funding. 

Harvest Impact’s social finance fund by 10C Shared Space offers character based lending and considers your values and social impact over past financial history. They are also able to offer additional financing at preferred rates based on project specifics for this program.
