Content marketing shouldn't wait until commercialization. The methodology for effective content is surprisingly similar to that for user research and product configuration. Plus, strategic content lays the foundation for the PR and advertising campaigns coming later.

Northern Development is proud to announce two new funding programs that will support innovation projects and economic priorities across central and northern B.C. The Northern Industries Innovation Fund and the Strategic Initiatives Fund will provide up to $1.65 million annually in grant funding for projects throughout the region. These new funds are part of the Trust’s ongoing response to mitigate the economic impact of the mountain pine beetle epidemic. The Northern Industries Innovation Fund will provide rebate funding up to $50,000 to a maximum of 50% of a project’s budget for small and medium enterprises deploying innovative technologies in industries such as mining, energy, agriculture, aquaculture and forestry. The program is supported with a $750,000 annual commitment from the Trust. The Strategic Initiatives Fund is a new proposal-based program that allows municipalities and First Nations to apply for grant funding to support significant projects that focus on long-term economic transformation and sustainability. The program is supported with a $900,000 commitment from Northern Development with grant funding only limited by the annual funds allocated to the program, up to 80% of a project’s value. Visit the Northern Development website for full release and details on the new programs.
As 2017 came to a close, we sat down and asked a few of our Entrepreneur Mentoring Program Interns about the work they accomplished during the fall semester… and were blown away by their responses! These highly motivated individuals have done outstanding work with organizations like @chemocozy, @gradeboostapp, and @speakuporg (just to say a few), taking the chance to learn and grow alongside these amazing organizations and companies! We’re incredibly excited to see what these students do next!
#act is a #decentralized#funding#platform focused on #supporting#activists on the front line of #fighting for the #future that we need to see. The ACT Swiss Foundation team led by Irish Olympian and innovative climate finance specialist, Fraser Brown includes board member Patrick Storchenegger, who also sits on the Ethereum Foundation’s Board, and German based crypto-exchange software security specialists, draglet GmbH. Since its successful pre-ICO in July last year, which raised 1200 #eth from 347 supporters, the team has been building five #ethereum#smart#contracts that govern the ACT platform’s innovate token economic model. The two main parts of ACT – the ACT Curation Engine and the ACT App – are both now in prototype phase. The ACT Curation Engine crypto token called “CE7” governs ETH rewards that curators receive for vetting proposal submitted to the platform – the process is completely decentralized and autonomous. After a short vetting period of 3 days, the best proposals are automatically pushed to the ACT App where citizens have just 24 hours to vote on them. ACT votes costs 0.005 ETH each, and successful proposals are paid automatically by the smart contract from the proceeds. Following this stage, the platform generates a funding smart contract for the proposal that it’s proponents can use to raise more funding directly. The ACT platform is designed to be highly responsive to causes, and aims to be able to fund change, and perhaps even global citizen-led movements, at any speed and any scale. It wants to transform the NGO sector with its decentralized technology. The team has forged alliances with activist groups in the USA, UK and Germany mainly fighting coal, oil and gas, and fracking abuses of the environment. These include the United Valleys Action Group in Wales, the famous “Nanas” in Yorkshire (think Grandmas shutting down fracking operations to save their Grandchildren), and Sunrise Youth Movement in the USA.
