What help is needed? I can help with content, story etc - if the help needed is visual cleanup then I am not the right person to talk to

Oof. That is a long shot. Does this involve inventory? Lots of data? Lots of users? Canadian entity or US or both? This could be quite an involved project and I can’t imagine an expert in both systems. That Venn diagram might not touch. Maybe start at the beginning and talk to a a QBDTE consultant who has done migrations to the cloud a lot. Jose Chatelet can you help Brian or give him some advice?

Flow Ventures

We just used Boast.Ai and were very happy with the process.

Shayan Rashid at SRJ Chartered Professional Accountants

You might want to be more specific, do you want someone to help write the main 3 questions for SR&ED, T2 corporate taxes and filings, or all of that together. Depending on the size of your claim, My advice would be to do the claim yourself. If it’s just the 3 main paragraphs 2x360 words, 1x720 words) or something like that you want help with, you can do that yourself. Most consultants will take 15-20% and that will sting having to pay that when you can contact cra and they will help you along they way I’m not against consultants, but as a previous founder whose done 8 successful claims, once you get the wording and structured content you’re all set. The main thing is this will set you for future claims success. If you’ve had to fill out NRC-IRAP applications , you can definitely do your own SR&ED - it’s very similar wording and content. If you want, I’d be happy to do a zoom and show you a few of our claims and walk you through how we did them for zero charge.

I can help there - we have a firm that has done that for many tech clients of ours. It's more work than you think. Email me details: [email protected]

We use gusto.com

I work with Canadian startups and their employee benefits. I always refer my cross border clients to Ned Havern from Havern Benefits out of Boston. Let me know if you want an intro.

We just ask them to enroll in ACA (silver plan) and we reimbursed them.

Looking for opinions/experiences with HackerX - worth it for finding good developers? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook 2394772839_10159608730142840

It’s what you make of it, for both sides. They promise quality candidates, but it is and will always be a game of finding the quality in the quantity. They’ll accept basically anyone who claims to be a developer, and mass cold email folks, so you still need to vet candidates as you would from any other channel. It’s a decent shortcut to meet many people in a short amount of time. The candidates (including myself at first) are usually not well prepared for the speed at which things move, so be conscious that people will trip up and be in a state of heightened stress. All that said, I’d rather pay for a session of hackerX than pay for a LinkedIn job post in this market. - someone who used hackerX to find a job in 2017, hired more while in that job and stopped paying attention in 2019 when we stopped attending. Not sure how much has changed since

If you use Discord, I would love to know any of this:

a) How many servers are you active/non-active in?
b) If you added one or two more to either what would that do to your cognitive load?
c) What’s taxing about being active?

Asking for myself, considering trying stuff there.

Humi, Bamboo or other for HRIS? Approx 50-60 staff members and growing. Don't need it to do payroll. Humi/Bamboo look like great platforms but at $8/9 per employee/month it adds up quickly. ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook 2394772839_10159605686097840

Based on my experience and the people I've spoken with, Bamboo has the best features, updates, and service. There's also workday, namely, and Zenefits that I've heard of, but don't exactly know how good or pricey they are though. I know all the big brands generally use workday and the smaller ones usually use Bamboo.

Happy to chat about it Parker Gilpin. Call anytime.

My current company uses Humi. It’s fine. I have a good impression of Bamboo since we implemented it at my old company. Bronwen Taylor is really the person to ask. She has implemented several HRIS systems and can probably help with decisions about needs, workflows, policies, etc.. LMK if you want an intro.

We use Humi! It’s been good for us. Happy to connect you in with our finops person to chat more as he runs it? Ps - long time no speak!!

Humi has been good for us.

Many employee benefits advisors work with CollageHR and can provide access to it.

Hey Parker Gilpin check us out at intellihr.com would be happy to discuss with you further!

HUMI. Great suite of features and function and is growing fast. Simon Kevin and Matt are awesome as well.

Looking for some help with Canadian grants. Anyone dealt with them in the past? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook 2394772839_10159591500307840

What types of grants are you looking for?

getgrants.ca/ Speak to Paul Vice .

Jeremy O'Krafka

On this topic, has anyone used GR firms to help with grants? If yes, did you find the cost was worthwhile?

Check out Mentorworks

Another vote for Jeremy O'Krafka

Check out hellopocketed.io/. Just came out of beta in September, huge searchable list of grants and a team of grant writers available to help and even manage follow on reporting. Awesome team too!

There are usually plenty of free resources for grants. I found that companies who charge for services related to grants are most of the time a (major) waste of money. Just use google and ask questions. It is not very hard... I went for many (and got some) - and never used any help ( but had dozens of companies wanting to help for nice fees πŸ™‚ )

Mentorworks is the go to for grant writing besides SRED.

Talk to NuBinary , I think they're able to help you with that. They're well versed in getting startups off the ground and they can help you find the right grants.

Paul Vice can help.

Hi. Check out Humi.ca. Or wagepoint.

We switched to Knit and works great automatically !

Payment evolution.

Payment evolution and wagepoint are both easy and great.

+1 for payment evolution, we use it for both payroll and business payments. their interface got a lot better this year.

I recommend Wagepoint as well

Payment Evolution is what we use and are very happy with.

PaymentEvolution is very startup friendly.
