When starting a new business, there are so many things to consider. A common topic that comes up in our conversations with new entrepreneurs is early-stage financing. Should they approach a lender or investor? What kind of grants are out there to help? We understand there’s no instruction manual with these answers, but we can address some of the most common questions.
If you’re stuck on your options for early-stage financing, this page is designed to take some of the mystery out of the process. You’ll discover how to prepare for meetings with lenders, what kind of information they’re looking for, and whether lending or investing is right for your business. You’ll also find information on the almost $5,000 in grants available through Small Business BC to improve your e-commerce, and make your business more accessible for those with disabilities.
If you’re still left with burning questions, Small Business BC is always here to assist. Contact Us and we’ll help untangle the knot.
