Regional Relief and Recovery Fund support available through Venture Niagara has been fully committed.
Eligible businesses are encouraged to contact us to discuss other funding or liquidity relief options available.
Businesses and organizations seeking a loan over $60,000, or those located outside the service area of a CFDC, may wish to apply for funding through FedDev Ontario.
Financing is accessed by the submission of a Loan Application, satisfactory due diligence by Venture Niagara staff and approval by the corporation’s loan committee. Like any application for a business loan, a certain amount of detail will be necessary both on the application and through supporting documents.
Venture Niagara has invested in a variety of businesses. Here are a few examples of the types of companies we have provided financing to:
