JRCC FD is hosting United Way workshop for social enterprises

Are you an established Social Enterprise with a new business opportunity or plans for expansion?

The Mixed Capital Opportunities Fund (MixedCap) will support the expansion of an early stage, high growth non-profit social enterprises by providing a hybrid form of capital, comprised of a combined loan (50%) and grant (50%).  MixedCap is funded by the Province of Ontario and United Way Toronto & York Region (through a gift from the Polar Foundation), with all loan financing coming from Alterna Savings.

If you are an incorporated non-profit, have identified a solid business opportunity and located/operating in the Greater Toronto-Hamilton area, then you are eligible to apply for between $10,000 and $30,000 in total investment, split equally between a loan and a grant.

Organization interested will have to attend a mandatory workshop and submit a business plan as part of the application process.  Next workshop is on scheduled on Friday, April 15th, 2016 at the JRCC Furniture Depot in Thornhill.  To register, please click here
