Financing For Businesses in Growth and Transition
You’re a small-to-medium-sized enterprise (SME) in the Southern Ontario that’s undergoing a transition, whether growth, expansion, or purchase. This is an important inflection point in a business’s life and you need funds to finance it.
But where do you go?
Most Banks will often put you into a cursory, one-size-fit-all process because of your risk profile; smaller lenders or investors want an arm and a leg in return for their help.
This highlights a unique problem for SMEs: There is a large gap in the financial services industry. A disconnect exists between SMEs enterprises that need financing for various growth and exit strategies and the financial institutions that provide it.
Bench Capital Advisory Inc. can help. We’re an independent consulting firm that specifically assists Small-to-Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) that are in transition and require:
- Expansion financing
- Acquisitions financing
- Management or Leveraged Buyout financing
