What We Do

Debt Financing

We operate a suite of private funds with a track record of A) rewarding investors and B) providing bridge financing solutions to small and medium sized companies that want to grow and have receivables from government tax credit programs like the Strategic Innovation Fund, Canada Media Fund, and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency among others.

Why Does It Matter

Canadian Tax Credits

The common issue faced by a large number of growing companies in Canada is that there is generally a 3-4 month lag between applying/being approved for SR&ED tax credits and other government funded programs, and actually receiving funds from the government. We offer short term bridge financing solutions that allow these advances against their government receivables.
