Funding for the program is provided by the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev) and Launch Lab has partnered with regional representatives to deliver the Future Proof program in eastern Ontario. 

Transformation Teams have completed over 170 digital transformations for businesses in eastern Ontario with a number of transitions in progress. Over 50 businesses in Leeds Grenville have participated in the program.

Bill Flikweert owns and operates On the Trail, a bicycle sales and repair shop in the Township of Augusta. Bill recently completed the Future Proof program and is thrilled with the changes that it has brought to his business.

“The members of the Transformation Team were so knowledgeable. Expert advisors evaluated my business and provided me with an action plan and implementation support, Bill says.

"The positive impacts on my business from the digital transformation, including improvements to my website and social media accounts, have been immediate in terms of increased business and revenue," adds Bill.
