How to Borrow Money to Start a Business

Course Description

Entrepreneurs and their ideas come in all shapes and sizes but the one common issue they all must address is early stage financing. It’s estimated that roughly 82% of new businesses fail due to cashflow problems.

So, how do you secure that all-important early stage financing? In this seminar, representatives from Vancity Microfinance and Futurpreneur Canada will walk you through the steps needed to acquire start-up funds.

What Will I Learn?

  • Understand the various financing options available

  • How your credit rating can affect the process

  • Insight on how to get a “yes” from a lender

  • The importance of your business plan

  • How mentorship can help you

  • The role of community building

Due to the rapidly evolving public health situation surrounding COVID-19, Small Business BC has reached the difficult decision to modify how we deliver our services in the coming weeks.

As an organization, our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our clients, staff and service providers. We also want to ensure we maintain the high service standards our clients expect. As such, we will be delivering all our services online, or over the phone, until further notice. See here for more information on our service changes. Please use our COVID-19 small business resources – including this practical checklist for business continuity.
