Looking for support?  Whether you’re a student, researcher, or entrepreneur, I can promise you there are a lot more programs available to you across Ontario then you think.  But we don’t hear about them enough.  As a student, I can a test to that.  Finally a central up-to-date database has been created by OCRI with that information right at your fingertips:  Academic Research Commercialization Support (ARCS).  On ARCS you can find funding opportunities, training opportunities, competitions available in the region, tax reductions, etc., all organized by relevance to a student, researcher and/or entrepreneur. 

I don’t know what context William Pollard said this in, but it seems appropriate:  Information is a source of learning. But unless it is organized, processed, and available to the right people in a format for decision-making, it is a burden, not a benefit.”

ARCS is filled with useful and relevant information that is organized for easy processing.  I for one wish ARCS existed years ago, but better late than never.  The link for ARCS is:  http://www.entrepreneurship.com/arcs.php   Hope it’s useful to you. :0)
