Here is what other successful professionals say about ConnexFund Services:

I was very impressed by how Iana was carrying out not just a revision of my program application, but also overseeing the entire application process, including introducing my company to the program managers in order to better understand their expectations, discussing all available program options, guiding me in writing the application in a more efficient and professional way, and finally, revising and adding some very important parts in the application in order to increase the chances for my company to be accepted for the program.

Ken Schmidt, Ph.D, FCIC, P.Chem.

President, Wilson Analytical, St. Albert, Alberta

I’ve been following Iana’s career since 2007. Her unique mix of skills and experiences stood out for me because of her ability to generate innovative strategies and approaches by combining old in new ways. The accolades and accomplishments in her CV point to the result of her innovative thinking no matter what sector she touched (government, not-for-profits, small business, start-ups). A skill I admire in Iana is her ability to disrupt thinking and routines in a polite and kind way helping this way to achieve unexpected and valuable outcomes. That strength comes from her diverse personal and professional experience and accomplishments, something that can’t be learned.

Ioana Popescu, MBA

Project Manager, Edmonton, Alberta, Canadian Patient Safety Institute, Edmonton, AB

I met Iana at a U of T microfluidic event a couple of years ago. From the first minute I could tell she was attentive to detail, a good listener and has great business acumen. We have subsequently collaborated on work together and it’s always a pleasure to work with such a smart, honest professional.
