Navigating the Loans Process for Indigenous Entrepreneurs

February 9, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

How to create a successful loan application for an Indigenous-owned business

Course Description

According to a recent report, Indigenous business ownership is increasing at five times the rate of non-Indigenous businesses. Despite this explosive growth, many Indigenous entrepreneurs still face challenges in securing the loans they need to start and grow their business. If you’re an Indigenous entrepreneur, knowing where to apply, and what to include in your application, will make all the difference in creating a successful loan application.

Join representatives from Community Futures Network of British Columbia and Indigenous Business Development Services for this informative webinar as we share information on navigating the loans process. You’ll discover where to get support and how to access loans, we’ll review loan applications to gain crucial insights, and we’ll share key tips on what lenders are looking for.

What Will I Learn?

  • The core elements of a loan application and key inclusions for successful applications
