We are delighted to welcome our first bank to our growing cross-border community. Please join us in welcoming BDC, the only bank devoted exclusively to Canadian entrepreneurs, as our newest member organization.
BDC promotes entrepreneurship with a focus on small and medium-sized businesses. With its 123 business centres across Canada, BDC provides businesses in all industries with financing and advisory services. BDC’s national network of consultants and highly experienced specialists can help your business scale up, be more productive, innovate and globalize. They offer objective, practical advice on a range of subjects to help solve management challenges across your business.
Its investment arm, BDC Capital, offers equity, venture capital and flexible growth and transition capital solutions. BDC is also the first financial institution in Canada to receive B Corp certification.
What this means to our community is that growing Canadian businesses who are clients of BDC will have a new opportunity to connect with Southern California as they consider their U.S. market strategy. And our Canadian network will have additional opportunities to interact with BDC to learn about their financing and advisory services.
