Let us help you find investment
or a new business venture to invest in.
Innovative companies need capital to develop and grow. However, choosing the right funding approach isn’t easy – bootstrapping, government programs, tax incentives, loans and leasing, friends and family investment, angel investment, venture capital. Spark Centre can help you develop a funding plan that is appropriate for your goals and your business opportunity.
A common mistake made by entrepreneurs is to seek investment before they are ready. Companies typically get only one chance to pitch their opportunity to a prospective funding source and word can travel quickly within the community if your company is not ready for prime time. Spark Centre can help you prepare your pitch to ensure that you present your opportunity in a way that will be most compelling.
When you are ready for investment, and if equity investment is right for your company, Spark Centre has led the creation of the Spark Angel Network, a network of investors that actively seek investment opportunities in our regions. We also have relationships with a number of other sources of investment within the region and beyond. www.sparkangels.ca
Accessing government support programs can be an important part of your company’s funding strategy. But finding the right programs for your company, your stage of development and your industry isn’t always easy. Spark Centre can help you narrow your search and focus on the programs that are most appropriate to your particular circumstances.
