Invest Ottawa is the most remarkable resource for Ottawa-based entrepreneurs! If you've followed us at all on Facebook you might recall a post about having won a spotlight display opportunity in their lobby. They also recently gave us a shout-out in one of their entrepreneurial newsletters!! But this is, by far, our greatest honour yet....
Lift Flavours was invited, back in February, to apply for a program that would focus on improving its presence across all web media. The carrot? An opportunity to pitch for a grant to apply $$ toward web services. The most challenging question in the application process? "Tell us something interesting about yourself"!! I'll only tell you the answer(s) if you ask me...!!
After 4 weekly, day-long meetings to explore online web/shopping platforms, search engine optimization (SEO), social media channels and website mapping and delivery, we (15 companies) were invited back to make our pitches. 5 of us would be successful.
It's taken us a good few days to process just what happened last Friday, May 12th.... But in a nutshell, Lift Flavours won a fantastic grant to apply toward our web presence!! I can't say enough about Invest Ottawa: the opportunities it offers and the information and resources it provides! We've benefited from information seminars, marketing advisors, legal and accounting specialists, and all-round amazing input.
Thank you so much, Invest Ottawa; you rock!! #investottawa @investottawa
