Applications have opened for Innovacorp’s Sprint competition, which awards a total of $100,000 to early-stage innovation-driven startups in Nova Scotia.

The applications are open until midnight Jan. 6 and can be found here. Winners will be notified Jan. 17.

“The goal of Sprint is to find and support high potential, early stage knowledge-based companies, and encourage entrepreneurial activity in the province,” says a post on the Innovacorp website.

Winners will receive up to $25,000 each in non-dilutive, non-repayable funding and business guidance from experienced industry professionals.

Sprint includes two streams: Phase 1 for companies that have not received Sprint funding before; and Phase 2 for companies that have been awarded funding before and met milestones. Companies can win Sprint funding up to three times.
