Early Stage Financing for Small Business

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

At Small Business BC, our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our clients, staff and service providers. As a result, we continue to deliver all our services online, or over the phone until further notice. View our resources for getting Back to Business, or connect directly with a business advisor through our COVID-19 Support Service.
