Intuit Canada is thrilled to announce that President and CEO Jeff Cates has been appointed to Startup Canada’s Board of Directors, further deepening the relationship between Intuit Canada and Startup Canada as we work together to reduce startup failure and improve financial literacy among Canadian entrepreneurs.

Since announcing our partnership in 2014, we’ve supported the launch of 25 local Startup Communities with 21,200 entrepreneurs across the country and invested in 23 co-working spaces for entrepreneurs to help build Canada into an entrepreneurial nation. From direct support for entrepreneurs through digital and live education, to joint and partnered government advocacy and global thought leadership, we’ve helped provide the tools, technology and trusted advisors to boost entrepreneurs’ financial literacy, financial readiness and the fundability of their ventures.

“I am impressed with how Startup Canada is driving impact and accelerating growth in Canada’s technology sector. I share Startup Canada’s bold and fearless approach to entrepreneurship,” said Jeff Cates, president and CEO of Intuit Canada. “That is why I am very pleased to be joining Startup Canada as a member of its Board of Directors.”

This announcement comes as Startup Canada prepares to aggressively expand its reach over the next two years and engage more startups across the country, revealing that it will grow its flagship Startup Communities program to 100 communities by the end of 2017. We look forward to this exciting next chapter in our work together promoting financial literacy and fueling entrepreneurial success and innovation in Canada.
