How to Find Sources of Funding as an Immigrant Entrepreneur
posted on March 8, 2021

So, you’ve identified a great business opportunity and have done your market research. You’re almost ready to start your company! But, now you need money to make your dream a reality.

Women’s Enterprise Centre knows that accessing funding can be a barrier for many newcomer entrepreneurs, because they may have little to no credit history or few assets in their new home country.

Join Alpana Sharma, Women’s Enterprise Centre Business Advisor and immigrant entrepreneur for a free, interactive session to learn about the different types of funding support that can help make your business dreams a success!

As a development lender, we can often provide business loans when other funders cannot because we look at your skills and opportunities, not just your credit score. And we’re part of a large network of funding sources that may be able to support you.

During this free, interactive session Alpana will share:

  • How to overcome barriers to funding for immigrant entrepreneurs
  • Funding programs available to support immigrant entrepreneurs in BC
  • What you will need to apply for funding

March 16 | 10am to 11am PT | Free Webinar

Join us for this session to chat about funding opportunities. Our panelists will share how accessing funds at the right time helped them in business growth and success.
