This CATA exclusive teleforum recording provides critical insights on the new mandate of Export Development Canada (EDC) to begin underwriting bank loans to exporters that receive research and development tax credits through the SR&ED program.
EDC's initiative is very timely. Although interest rates have been low, SMEs (Small to Mid-Sized Enterprises) that have intellectual property as their primary asset have suffered reduced access to credit and working capital.
This teleforum features Keynote Moderator: Russ Roberts
, Sr. VP, CATAAlliance
; Presenters: Vicky Brouillard
, EDC Sector Advisor; and, Alex Berlin
, President and CEO, Afore Solutions. The recording also includes an informative and interactive Q and A session with the call's participants.
