Investment Capital

There are many challenges to owning a small business - among them, raising capital. The ability to raise capital can determine whether or not a good idea gets off the ground. It can also determine the ability to attract and retain good employees, to expand, and to compete in the global marketplace.

We offer programs to help small businesses gain access to capital.

The Small Business Venture Capital Program offers tax credits to investors to encourage them to make equity capital investments in B.C.-based small businesses.

Employee Share Ownership Program

The Employee Share Ownership Program encourages employees and employers to work together to achieve the long-term success of the business.
