Fonds de solidarité FTQ and Inno-centre Team Up to Encourage 30 Québec SMEs to Innovate

In an effort to help them get ahead, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ and business accelerator Inno-centre are teaming up to offer 30 Québec SMEs custom coaching focused on innovation. This new joint initiative makes perfect sense for two organizations that consider innovation a priority.

Québec’s financial community creates the Inclusion fund

In the wake of the tragic events that recently took place in Québec City, Québec’s financial community is now joining forces to establish Inclusion, a philanthropic fund of more than $3.5 million to promote values in which it deeply believes: openness, inclusiveness and equality.

Created in 1983, the Fonds de solidarité FTQ is a development capital fund that calls upon the solidarity and savings of Quebecers to help fulfill its mission to contribute to Québec's economic growth by creating and protecting jobs through investments primarily in small and medium-sized businesses in all spheres of activity.

The Fonds also seeks to encourage Quebecers to save for retirement and to offer its over half a million shareholders-savers a reasonable return over and above the outstanding tax benefits they receive for purchasing Fonds shares. A leading purveyor of unsecured risk capital (growth and venture capital), the Fonds continues to drive our economy.
