LETTER OF INTEREST FOR BUSINESS CONSULTANTS

The objective of this letter of interest is to seek out business consultants’ interest regarding the provision of potential consulting services for specific industries as well as to determine if the business consultants’ knowledge and expertise meet potential future consulting requirements.

This is not a bid solicitation and no contract will directly result from this letter of interest.

Purpose:

The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) requires the services of business consultants (called industry advisors) in order to inform the due diligence assessment of the commercialization potential of Atlantic Innovation Fund (AIF) projects being considered for support. The industry advisor will assist ACOA Program Officers on commercialization and market potential issues of AIF project proposals. This work is to be done verbally as well as by filling out the AIF Industry Advisor Review Template, provided by ACOA, containing three questions.

Background:

The Atlantic Innovation Fund (AIF) is a program designed to make strategic investments in Research and Development (R&D) initiatives that directly contribute to the growth of technology-based economic activity in Atlantic Canada.

The objectives of the AIF are as follows:

  • increase activity in, and build capacity for, innovation and R&D that lead to technologies, products, processes or services that contribute to economic growth in Atlantic Canada;
  • increase the capacity for commercialization of R&D outputs;
  • strengthen the region’s innovation capacity by supporting research, development and commercialization partnerships and alliances among private-sector firms, universities, research institutions and other organizations in Atlantic Canada; and
  • maximize benefits from national R&D programs.

ACOA assistance available for AIF projects typically range between $500,000 up to $3 million. Eligible applicants include private-sector businesses, universities, colleges, non-government research organizations and provincial Crown corporations operating in Atlantic Canada. Additional information on the AIF program can be found on ACOA’s web site.
