How the program works
The BC Launch Online Grant program provides funding to BC-based businesses to develop or update your very own e-commerce website. If you already have a website but do not have the ability for customers to shop online, the grant program will also fund to upgrade your existing website into an online shop or an online booking system and/or improve your existing online operations to attract new local customers and expand to new markets. The grant will pay for up to 75% of eligible expenses, up to a maximum of $7,500 per business. That means you only have to pay 25% of the cost to turn your website into a revenue generating part of your business!

How the BC launch grant works
ITS Consulting have created an online web proposal we know works to meet all criteria needed to help BC businesses qualify for the BC Launch Online Grant. If the total investment needed to create you a brand new online ecommerce shop falls within the $7,500 eligible expense maximum offered by the BC government, than you only pay 25% of the value towards your new online store or online booking system for your business. If your online ecommerce website is estimated to exceed the $7,500 maximum expense, you are STILL ELIGIBLE for funding up to the $7,500, so we are happy to work with you to develop a plan so you can still capitalize on this amazing funding opportunity!

- Your business is owned, operated, and registered in BC and owned by a BC resident(s)
