We create a positive, constructive training and learning environment.

The Robcan Group will complete a full funding search. We will complete internet research, comprehensive review of all available funding and documentation of funding services for future use. We will create a data base of potential funders, contact the key people in each funding agency and clarify the criteria for each funder. We will write proposals, negotiate funding contracts and write the follow up reports. We take pride in our creativity, persistence and perseverance – the key components of a successful funding search.

The needs of companies and organizations are not always easy to articulate. The Robcan Group will observe, review, assess, evaluate, monitor and analyze your work environment. We will determine the work needs, training needs and capacity of your group. We will prepare a comprehensive needs analysis report outlining the recommended actions to address these needs.
