“I would like to share the excellent experience that FerroSmith had with SEED. The care and attention to detail was amazing and Stephanie helped us through every aspect of the Grant application process. We have since been supported with every aspect of using that grant to further grow our business and venture into new areas and products. The contact with a guiding mentor has been invaluable and enabled us to make sound business decisions and learn from other people’s experiences. We have also made use of the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot program by hiring a foreign skilled worker. With the help of SEED and Stephanie, the process has gone seamlessly, and our new employee will be arriving to begin work on February 1, 2021. Thank you to SEED for helping our dreams come true.” Ross Hesom, Owner, FerroSmith

"The Business Grant from SEED offered important start-up costs related to renovating our space. With funding from SEED we were able to complete our renovation in a timely manner, and to use sustainable and local materials (which often come at a higher price), and to hire professionals to assist with the renovation. Receiving a SEED Business Grant has also facilitated greater community awareness of Altona Yoga. We have had a strange, but a successful first year of business, despite all the hardships during the pandemic." Susie Fisher, Owner, Altona Yoga

"Through the support and assistance our company has received from Stephanie and the representatives at SEED, we've been able to renovate and expand our location to better serve our clients. We recommend them to current and prospective business owners without hesitation; their presence is a great benefit to the business community in Altona and surrounding area." Bryan Warkentin, Owner, Matrix Financial Services
