Memorial University’s Genesis Centre has announced that it is the first designated business incubator/accelerator in Newfoundland and Labrador under the federal Startup Visa Program for international entrepreneurs. Startup Visa will allow immigrant entrepreneurs to apply for venture capital funds, angel investor groups, or business accelerators/incubators funding; and can help facilitate and advance the entrepreneur’s permanent residency status. A release states that Genesis partnered with groups such as the Canadian Acceleration and Business Incubation Association, the Government of Canada, Refugee and Immigrant Advisory Council, and the Association for New Canadians.
