Gautam purpose is to be of service. He’s always enjoyed helping others, and since days as a youngster, has always strived for excellence and remained a topper throughout his academic career.
Early on in his career, his heart was set on entrepreneurship and his love to solve challenges translated into working with other business owners. Given his academic background in both Neurosciences and Information Technology, he realized his background was an ideal fit to businesses across an assortment of industries, especially in Science and Technology. In 2007, he launched Tax Incentives Made Easy to build long term relationships by helping other Canadian businesses reach their goals.
With over 15 years’ experience in Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax incentives, digital media tax credits, government grants and funding businesses, Gautam’s expertise stems from working at two prior financial management consulting firms, further solidified by series of Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and other industry related courses/certifications. He functions as Tax Incentives Made Easy (affectionately referred to as T.i.M.E Consulting Group) CEO and lead R&D / Government Funding Specialist and takes an active role in mentoring wherever he can. He’s built a strong team of talented individuals who love the work they do, and he enthusiastically affords them every opportunity to shine.
As his love of chess, soccer and anything competitive can also attest to, Gautam delights in winning – and winning government grant applications means success for his clients, and that means contributing towards helping their businesses grow faster! Whether it’s his team, his clients or connections at many CRA/government funding agencies and start-up accelerators and incubators, he is passionate about empowering others to achieve their full potential.
He was a personal supporter of World Vision Canada for a number of years, sponsor to children in Africa, where he spent his childhood. Gautam spends time in spiritual advancement, and prefers to govern by Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings, exemplary in a sustainable plant based diet by choice. During the Covid-19 pandemic, touched and equally disturbed by its destructive effects on individuals and families, Gautam has chosen to help families in need within India. He believes that together, we can support each other, and stand up to Covid-19.
Gautam believes that government funding should benefit every business. Our commitment is to increase our reach, and to bring awareness to the many government benefits for Canadian businesses, because when a business is fueled by government grants, then in turn, it will generate jobs which will allow others to feed themselves. For him, it’s so much more than just a vocation. It’s a way of life.
