Principal payments postponement at the start of the loan
One of the biggest challenges for small businesses is getting adequate financing. We provide funds to help Canadian businesses in the start-up phase who have been in operation for at least 12 months and have generated revenues* turn their business ideas into reality.
Financing you can use to
Get your company off the ground
Purchase assets, pay start-up fees, or buy a franchise.
Invest in marketing, a website or advisory services.
Complement your line of credit
Replenish working capital depleted by start-up costs.
*Subject to approval. Certain conditions apply.
Financing tailored to your needs
Benefit from longer amortization periods and match payments to your cash flow cycle to avoid using cash needed for day-to-day activities.
A “beyond the numbers” approach
We look at your business plan and its overall potential. We also take your experience into account.
Peace of mind
Our terms and conditions don’t change without due cause. Plus, we don’t take personal assets as collateral for the loan.
BDC not only helped me with financing, they provided me with tools and resources that helped structure the business and gave me the freedom I needed to build my company.
