Applications are now open for Innovation P.E.I.’s 2019 Ignition Fund competition, which offers up to $25,000 to launch or expand a business on the Island.

This is the sixth year for the Ignition Fund, which supported 10 entrepreneurs across P.E.I. last year with start-up and expansion funding.

To qualify, applicants must be startup businesses and entrepreneurs who are committed to establishing and operating a new business in the province.

The products or services must be innovative and have the potential to be sold outside of P.E.I.

Islanders can apply for the fund at Ignition Startup Fund by July 12.

The Ignition Fund is one way the provincial government supports entrepreneurs with new ideas, together with the Startup Zone, Launch Pad, micro loans and others.
