News – E-Business grants for local businesses in Parry Sound Muskoka to become available in April 2017
Parry Sound Muskoka Community Network (PMCN) has been provided with BEAM 4 funding which means that businesses can apply for grants up to $4,000 towards upgrading their e-business solutions. Details will be on the PMCN website April 3, 2017.
PMCN has funded 500 businesses with the past three BEAM funds. Each time we have a new round of funding we have an opportunity to make some changes. We will no longer be awarding grants on a first come, first serve basis. Each community will have a window of time in which to submit applications and those that are approved will be prioritized, with the help of independent local business owners, to pick the best for receiving the grants. The grants provide 75% funding up to the maximum of $4,000 provided the business uses a local developer. We will also be offering two time windows per community when businesses can apply over the next year.
PMCN is also working on other projects to help with both the supply of broadband to the community as well as helping businesses to cope with the demand for better technologies. Please check out www.pmcn.ca for more details!
