The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Member of Parliament for Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for ACOA, today announced a $498,150 Government of Canada investment in Qimple Inc.
The conditionally repayable contribution, which is being provided through ACOA’s Business Development Program (BDP), will help the company undertake business development and marketing activities to promote and innovate their product.
Qimple Inc. works to improve the hiring experience for both companies and applicants. With Qimple, companies can create a compelling job ad and distribute it to multiple job boards, screen incoming applicants with its applicant tracking system with resume parsing technology, and conveniently collaborate with their hiring team to make that great hire all in one place.
Recently, the Canadian technology publication Techvibes named Qimple Inc. one of the 20 most promising startups in the country, and in 2015 the company completed the 500 Startups five month accelerator program in San Francisco. They were the first company from Atlantic Canada to be accepted into the program.
“Innovation is critical to Atlantic Canada’s economic success. That’s why the Government of Canada is committed to encouraging innovation that will increase the productivity, growth and competitiveness of businesses. We are proud to support local small- and medium-size businesses, such as Qimple Inc., as they expand, secure larger markets, and in doing so, strengthen the economy both locally and nationally.”
- The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for ACOA
“It is important to support companies in their critical growth stages as they continue to do their part to help strengthen the regional economy. The Government of Canada is pleased to be working with Qimple Inc. to help them with the commercialization of their product.”
- The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Member of Parliament for Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe
“We are absolutely thrilled to have ACOA’s support. The funding is allowing us to significantly increase our business development and marketing activities, so we can continue to grow and be a successful Atlantic Canadian company."
