New Brunswick companies to receive support to grow in export markets

Moncton, December 1, 2016.  Venn Innovation is pleased to announce the Target program, which serves to support technology-focused, export-ready small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in New Brunswick to acquire leads and close sales in key export markets.  

Companies with core business operations in ICT, medtech, cleantech, biotech, agritech and bioscience will benefit from this program, which enables companies to augment their inbound and outbound sales and marketing efforts to find the right customers for their products and services.  

This initiative is made possible thanks in part to a Government of Canada investment of $300,000 through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency’s Business Development Program.  


“The Government of Canada is developing an Innovation Agenda that includes expanding support to companies to help them become more innovative, attract investments and become more export-oriented. The investment we are undertaking today with Venn Innovation is a perfect example of how together, we can move forward with fresh ideas to make innovation a national priority and put Canada on a firm path to long-term economic growth.”  
-The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for ACOA  

“I am pleased to see the Government of Canada supporting a forward thinking organization like Venn Innovation Inc. that works to advance and grow the New Brunswick technology sector and its companies. Funding announced today enables Venn to expand opportunities for the region’s high growth technology firms.”  
-The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Member of Parliament for Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe  

“By helping companies meet the right potential customers, we can ensure targeted growth begins and continues for these New Brunswick-based companies. This is an exciting program for companies in these high-impact sectors and we look forward to continuing to support economic growth across the Province.”  
-Doug Robertson, CEO, Venn Innovation
