how grant financing works

  • There can be months, and even years between the approval of the grant and the final disbursement.  Venbridge provides you with the funding when you need it via our Grant Financing programme.
  • Venbridge will look at your business plan and financial needs and put a plan together to meet your business objectives.  The timing of the government grants and loans may not meet your needs.  Venbridge can fix this with our unique grant financing solutions.


  • Established company with a solid historical performance
  • Minimum $200,000 grant
  • Clear criteria for grant disbursement
  • Company more than 2 years old


  • FAST: Receive funds in as little as 5 days
  • COST EFFECTIVE: While there is a cost to the loan, if you compare it to the cost of equity, the loan is usually much less expensive
  • SIMPLE: Standard loan documentation which is easy to understand


  • Our desire is to provide you as much funding to meet your business objectives.  We will look at all assets that can be funded to meet your needs
