Invest or support a start-up (Designated organizations)

Designated organizations are business groups that have been approved to invest in or support possible start-ups.

Organizations choose which business proposals to review. If one decides to review yours, it will assess the potential of your proposal and whether or not it will succeed. Each organization has its own intake process for proposals and criteria used to assess them.

If an organization chooses to support your business idea, it will give you a Letter of Support.

To apply for the Start-up Visa Program, your business idea or venture must get the support of one of the designated organizations listed below.
