New Proof of Concept Program Now Open
July 15, 2019 - Natural Products Canada (NPC) is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepting for the new Proof of Concept Program.
NPC’s new Proof of Concept Program (POC Program) addresses a consistent gap within the Canadian natural product ecosystem; funding to validate commercial applications of natural products or technologies.
“Our network has been telling us that proof of concept testing is a real challenge,” says Shelley King, CEO of Natural Products Canada. “They need to validate their products, but it’s difficult to find the funds from either government programs or private capital.”
