Ontario launches $200M technology fund

TORONTO, ONTARIO - Ontario will set up a fund of at least $200 million to help companies with new technologies who are having trouble finding investors.

A government source says the $200 million will help drive private investment into emerging Ontario technology companies and other high-tech businesses.

The fund was set up because of serious challenges that new technology companies face in raising venture capital due to tight credit markets.

The source says without access to capital, these companies cannot grow and create jobs in Ontario.

The announcement will be targeted to companies working in clean technology, life sciences, and digital media and communications technology.
