"My partner and I sat down and started going through every single private investor, trying to see who would be best suited for our needs. We were looking for somebody in the GTA, somebody with tech experience, somebody who knows our industry preferably. We reached out to a few but we didn't get any replies. Actually I contacted your experts from the membership area and the one that replied back to me told me to look at a specific grant program. When I opened it, I realized it was a government program. I instantly though that it will be difficult, and pointless. Why would the government fund my business if the banks didn't even want to look at it. But after further reading and noticing that the criteria to apply was pretty simple, and we had all of it already we tried anyways. "
