St. John’s-based Genesis, Memorial University’s incubator for tech startups, has announced a partnership with the St. John’s office of BDO Canada, which is designed to benefit entrepreneurs in its Enterprise program. 

BDO, a global accounting firm, will provide Genesis clients, who are all in the early years of growing their ventures, with workshops, mentoring and other resources, including BDO’s Virtual CFO resource. BDO will also provide financial support to Genesis to re-invest in programs and startup development.

“Their {BDO’s} local presence, international network and broad range of solutions gives our clients a deep well of expertise to draw from,” Colin Corcoran, Director of Finance and Administration at Genesis said in a statement.

Genesis alumni include some of the province’s most successful companies, including Verafin, Rutter, Mysa, Virtual Marine and Genoa Design.
