Grant Financing

Capitalize on your government incentives

How grant financing works

There are thousands of grants in Canada ranging from hundreds of dollars for training to millions of dollars for investment. We take the time to understand your business goals and recommend which grants, subsidies or loans you qualify for and how we can finance them. It can take months, and even years to get from grant approval to the final disbursement. Venbridge provides you with the capital now so you don’t have to wait.

Combined with SR&ED, we can develop a financing package to ensure you are maximizing your government incentives and getting the amount of growth capital you need.
