Starting Business in Canada

Seed capital is in abundance today compared to 10 years ago, according to Lai. “For a seed-stage startup, Toronto is almost as good as anywhere else, except San Francisco,” he explains. “We have so much seed capital going around, relatively speaking. There’s never been a better time to start a seed stage company.” The launch of OMERS Ventures in 2011 changed the game for VCs in Canada, says Lai. It stimulated the creation of new funds, and incentivized deep-pocketed U.S. investors to pour money into Canadian startups.

Tuition fee in Canada, when compared to universities in the US and UK, is fairly cheaper. And when considering the return on investment, it is quite a viable option for Indian students.??

You can also apply to a range of scholarships to cut down on your educational expenses.

Government grants like FedDev Ontario and the Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) provide mentorship, entrepreneurial support and financing to help new businesses succeed. The feds also provide some relief for startups at tax time. “If you’re doing any sort of R&D, the government support that we get here through the SR&ED [Scientific Research and Experimental Development] tax credit is far better than anywhere else in the world,” points out Lai. “There’s nothing even close in the U.S.” Businesses can get upwards of 50% back in cash from the investments they make into R&D.
The University of Waterloo and University of Toronto are two of the best engineering schools in North America says Lai, noting that top tech companies like Google and Facebook routinely recruit there. “You’re always going to be competing with US companies that have a foreign exchange advantage and also a scale advantage,” acknowledges Lai. “But there’s always super-talented people that don’t want to live in the US, and that pool of people is quite significant.”
