ngx Interactive is a creative technology studio based in Vancouver with over 20 years of experience in visitor engagement. Their team of talented creatives bridges disciplines to curate custom media experiences guided by three concepts: expression, agency, and relevance.
Their mission is to push technology to new heights to create novel and meaningful experiences. They work with organizations worldwide including the Smithsonian, Jurassic World, BC Children’s Hospital, the Dubai UAE Expo, and more. Their commitment has garnered them multiple awards including the 2019 Communicator Award of Excellence in multiple categories, and the HOW International Design Merit Award in multiple categories in 2019.
In 2021, ngx was getting ready for another big year in 2022. To maintain their growth trajectory, they needed to hire the right people and push for more digital positions including animators, graphic designers, and video editors. Finding the right people to grow their team meant ngx could continue to branch out and deliver the highest quality work.
Additionally, they were looking for more ways they could support their talented team members. Training was identified as a method to upskill their staff to better serve their clients and support career development to promote from within. With their hiring and training needs, ngx needed some support to make it work.
As a company, ngx moves incredibly fast. Their success is owed to the dynamism in their operations and how quickly their team executes projects. With many projects and business growth efforts on the go, they didn’t have the time to dedicate to grant management.
Without the time and resources needed, ngx didn’t know what kind of grant funding they would qualify for, how small business grants work, or where to get started.
