FNVCQ is the only VENTURE CAPITAL FIRM controlled by First Nations of Quebec. FNVCQ was established in 2001 through the partnership of five major financial institutions in Quebec.
First Nations Venture Capital of Quebec, limited partnership, invests directly in private and community-operated Aboriginal businesses to allow the establishment and implementation of business projects likely to create jobs and economic spinoffs for all First Nations of Quebec.
Venture capital is a source of funding complementary to other forms of financing such as capital outlay, term loans, etc.
Example: an entrepreneur wants to start a new business. He needs $100 000 to cover all costs.
He has $10 000 to invest in the form of capital outlay and the bank is willing to lend him $50 000 guaranteed by the equipment to be acquired. The entrepreneur is short $40 000. He calls FVNVCQ.
Venture capital serves to supplement funding for all business projects demonstrating potential profitability. Because our interventions are rarely guaranteed, our capital is considered more at risk than secured funds advanced by a bank.
Since the investment is made in the form of equity and quasi-equity, both the financial structure and financial ratios of the business are improved, providing promoters with greater leverage and the financial capability required to achieve their business objectives.
