This Kelowna-based consulting firm is helping local businesses get government grants

In this episode of Business Matters, presented by Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union, host Rob Cupello is joined by James Grieve, owner of Catalyst Strategies Consulting.

Grieve is a lifelong learner and loves to provide value to his clients.

He’s also always had a passion for customer service, and the combination of his love of learning and desire to help businesses deliver a great experience to their clients is where the idea for Catalyst Strategies Consulting was born.

His newest venture within the company is helping businesses apply and make the most out of the Canada Digital Adoption Program, also known as CDAP.

During the pandemic when people couldn’t go to stores, the government realized that Canada was lagging behind other nations when it comes to digital transformation, marketing and process, so they developed CDAP to help businesses adopt digital technologies and increase their competitiveness.

Grieve and Catalyst Strategies Consulting are helping businesses fill out applications for this program and directing them on how to make the most out of the grants and loans.

To hear more about Catalyst Strategies Consulting and how they can build the perfect roadmap to your business’s success, and how you can make the most out of the CDAP program, watch the full episode below.

To get started on your CDAP application with James and his team, visit the CDAP info website and fill out the pre-qualification form.
