What does Venture North do?

Eric & Hadley - CooLED Lighting

Our job is to provide small businesses at the "Tip of the Mitt" with the capital they need to succeed. We’re proud to invest in the place we call home so that we can create and retain jobs in our region.

Venture North makes capital available to businesses like yours whose needs don’t qualify for a traditional loan. We know you’re more than a credit score. You’re a member of our community and your story matters.

"Traditional banks weren’t going to fund me. I always wanted to open a cafe, but I didn’t have many of the necessary resources. I heard about Venture North and they really made this possible."
