Taking emerging interactive digital media companies to the next level!
Applications for the 2022 Program are Now Closed.
In partnership with Ontario Creates, Interactive Ontario presents the sixth edition of the Ontario Creates IDM Fund: Futures Forward. This program is designed to provide Ontario’s early-stage screen-based companies with access to the skills that they require to fast-track their knowledge acquisition and enhance the competitiveness of their companies through a series of workshops. The program is intended for companies that do not currently meet the requirements of the Ontario Creates IDM Fund: Concept Definition and Production programs.
In addition to weekly sessions led by industry experts, participants will receive continual coaching from grant writing coaches who will review homework and provide feedback over the 8-week course.
If your emerging interactive digital media company is looking to strengthen its capacity in funding/financing, accounting, legal, marketing and more this program is built for you. This leadership training will help you to grow your great game or interactive digital media product into a sustainable company.
Completion of this course results in your eligibility to apply to the Ontario Creates IDM Fund Concept Definition and Production programs. Participants are also eligible to compete for the $15,000 Futures grant open only to IDM Fund Futures participants (early development activities).
This year’s workshop will specifically cater to non-linear IDM products such as those who are developing Video Games and VR/AR applications.
Participants will take part in 8 weekly workshops via Zoom on Wednesdays from October 19th to December 7th. In addition, participants will be arranging a total of 4 meetings with Interactive Ontario’s coaches.
