Bikki Singh

Summer Intern, Marketing & Research

Joining the team this summer as Jr writer, marketing editor and grant researcher, Bikki brings a unique high energy to the team.  Currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree for Public Relations at Humber College Bikki seeks a career in public policy and PR relations within the Government upon graduation in 2017.

Founded Jan 2012, then HWY1 Ventures Inc set out to provide a select group of high-tech clientele with tailored Funding support, SR&ED and Grant writing services.  Born from the frustrations of high-priced low-touch SR&ED providers who simply springboard in and out of firm, founder Paul Vice believed a better practice should involve more in-person attention year-round.  The results from adding in Grant writing with SR&ED proved a winning model and helped deliver early funding success for clients such as InteraXon, 500px, Thalmic, Roadmunk etc.  With a name change in 2014 GetGrants was born to serve only the best Entrepreneurs, bringing Hustle to supporting their early startups, and delivering funding success faster without burdening confusion.
