It’s another exciting day here at Sparrow Connected as we celebrate a new achievement.  

I'm proud to announce that Sparrow Connected is one of 11 Edmonton and area companies to receive federal funding from the Government of Canada provided through the Business Scale-up and Productivity program, as well as the Jobs and Growth Fund. 

  • The Business Scale-up and Productivity program supports high-growth businesses that are scaling up and producing innovative goods, services, or technologies.  
  • The Jobs and Growth Fund helps job creators and the organizations that support them future-proof their businesses, build resiliency, and prepare for growth. program that provides federal support that enables high-growth companies in the Edmonton region to scale-up, expand, and bring their innovative products and services to new markets. 

On Friday, I had the honour of attending a news conference hosted by Prairies Economic Development Canada (PrairiesCan) and meeting The Honorable Daniel Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan and The Honorable Randy Boissonnault, Minister of Tourism and Associate Minister of Finance. 

"When Alberta's innovators and entrepreneurs need a little support to scale-up our government is there to help them succeed. We want to see businesses in Edmonton and across the province thrive in a competitive global environment and today's investment reflects that. Supporting these leading-edge companies will help create high quality jobs for Albertans and help strengthen Edmonton's position as a hub for innovation and technology—both nationally and globally." 
-       The Honourable Daniel Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan 

"Alberta technology and entrepreneurial ecosystems continually raise the bar for innovation, resilience, and international leadership. Our announcement today will provide the resources and supports Edmonton's high-growth firms need to expand and capitalize on global market opportunities that will boost the regional economy, create good paying jobs, and support global competitiveness."
