Growth & Transition Capital financing solutions

Financing customized to pursue growth opportunities

Our Growth & Transition Capital team offers financing solutions on flexible terms to both mid-market and high-revenue Canadian companies. These solutions allow your business to raise capital when you have insufficient tangible assets to pledge for security and don’t want to dilute ownership.

Our solutions can be right for your business if you:

  • Run an established or high-growth firm
  • Have a strong management team
  • Demonstrate quality of financial reporting

Financing from $250,000 to $35M

  • Security is subordinated to secured lenders.

    This means that your chartered bank and long-term lenders will have a right to be repaid before us; this makes it easier for you to borrow.

  • Limits dilution of ownership and offers an affordable alternative to equity financing.

    In most cases, BDC will require no shareholder agreement, management rights and no board of directors representative; this ensures that your business stays in your hands.

  • Personal assets are not taken as collateral.
