Growth capital

Are you a small or medium sized high growth enterprise in BC?

Does your operation have a positive social, environmental, or other unique and innovative impact in the community? Do you need financing ranging from $500,000 to $5,000,000+?

If you answered yes to these questions then Vancity can assist you.

Solutions for social enterprises and ventures

We understand that beyond grants your social enterprise’s growth opportunities can be constrained by typical financing solutions. Maybe it’s because your enterprise lacks the physical assets or because your initiative doesn’t have the profit potential required. We understand that in the past this could have hindered you from securing conventional financing and that’s why we developed the Resilient Capital Program.

The Resilient Capital Program is a unique, high-impact investment program that makes up to $15 million available for qualifying social enterprises and ventures to help build resilient communities. The program is made possible by a partnership between Vancity and Vancouver Foundation.

It provides a source of patient capital for social enterprises and ventures and is funded by an attractive deposit-based product, designed to give depositors a simple conduit to fund high-impact social enterprises and ventures without risk.

Resilient Capital provides much needed equity capital and debt with flexible repayment terms for your social enterprise. It ensures Vancity can finally fill a gap for social enterprises and ventures, between grants, which often help to get concepts off the ground and conventional debt, which help sustain growth.

We can tailor a package to fit your situation. Learn more.
