Thrive Venture Fund + Lab for Women
Thrive is a new $500 million investment platform supporting Canadian women entrepreneurs building Canadian tech companies. The platform provides venture capital as well as non-traditional early-stage funding. The BDC has many funds, I'm highlighting this one because it's very new and the largest of it's kind in the world.
Angel investors invest money in businesses in exchange for equity, usually at the early stage of a business's development. Sandpiper Ventures is a seed stage, angel backed fund focussed on women entrepreneurs. Their founders come from Canada's 4 Atlantic provinces. Sandpiper invests in scaleable, tech-enabled solutions with global potential.
The Atlantic CBDC offers too many programs to list. They cover both financial and non-financial support. Programs can be federal or provincial. There are programs for specific uses or they can be for specific types of entrepreneurs. Some programs fund website development.

You Need an MVP Website
Your minimum viable website is your Most Valuable Player. Sometimes that means a custom website, other times a template will do the job.
A typical custom-made website for a small/medium company can cost between $2000-$6000. Alternatively, a professionally customized template website can cost half that.
Are you smart enough to install your own template? Undoubtedly. Should you? Probably not. It would likely cost you a lot of time and aggravation. Plus, templates rarely fit straight out of the box. It takes a professional to customize it to suit your needs.
I use Webflow for fast, secure websites that - once setup - I teach you to update by yourself.
I'll infuse your template with your distinctive visual branding so you can build brand recognition.
I can add, delete or re-arrange sections, pages, features and integration to fit your needs.

I can write your website copy to improve your site's user experience and google ranking.
