GNWT seeking technology project proposals

·1 min read

Up to $100,000 will be given to the N.W.T. resident or company that submits the strongest proposal for an investment in technology.

That financial pledge comes from the N.W.T. Manufacturing Innovation and Technology Contribution, a GNWT fund designed to find a project that will reduce costs, increase productivity for an N.W.T. business, and increase local employment.

Members of the N.W.T. Manufacturing Association and new businesses looking to become a manufacturer can apply, as can individual N.W.T. residents.

Those applying must be prepared to make an equity contribution of at least 20 per cent of the cost of their proposal.

The project seeks to “support and encourage innovation in the N.W.T. manufacturing sector by supporting research into existing and emerging technologies.”

Entries must be submitted by December 13. Application details and eligibility criteria can be found on the GNWT’s website.
