COMPETE FOR UP TO $50K IN FINANCING TO LAUNCH YOUR INNOVATIVE START-UP
We’re looking for the next generation of Canadian entrepreneurs who are ready to disrupt an industry and change the game.
Futurpreneur Canada and Spin Master Corp. created the Spin Master Innovation Fund to bring financing, mentoring and exclusive skill-building opportunities to up to 10 innovative entrepreneurs each year. Over the past six years, the Spin Master Innovation Fund has helped 42 truly innovative businesses launch successfully.
If you have an innovative business model that offers a new or unique product or service, an improved process or the potential to impact the market in new ways, Spin Master Innovation Fund could launch you toward success.
A selection of candidates will be invited to pitch their innovative enterprises to a panel of Spin Master executives and industry leaders. It’s a great way to sharpen your pitching skills and compete for a place as a Spin Master Innovator.
Our 2016 Spin Master Innovation Fund recipients will get a two-day paid trip to Toronto to meet one-on-one with Spin Master executives and participate in exciting professional development opportunities.
Our 2016 recipients will also get a two-day, paid trip to Toronto for the Accelerator Workshop where they will join Spin Master Innovation Fund alumni to meet with Spin Master executives and participate in further development opportunities.
The gallery below features some of the great success stories from previous rounds of the Spin Master Innovation Fund. Learn more about these entrepreneurs, their innovative business ideas and their advice for aspiring entrepreneurs. Or take a moment and check out all Spin Master Innovation Fund Alumni.

Futurpreneur Canada is focused on making it easier for innovative aspiring business owners to secure financing. And we’ve partnered with the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) so that we can extend our help further.
We offer collateral free loans at better interest rates than most banks. But we can’t do it alone. We’re able to finance $15,000 per business. If you need more money, BDC may provide another $35,000.
For applicants aged 35-39 you are applying to receive all your financing through the BDC (up to $50,000). You’ll still apply through us and work with a Futurpreneur Canada mentor, but your financing terms and conditions are from BDC.
