Services for Issuers

We work with a range of non-profit organizations and for-profit enterprises and organizations from community power co-operatives producing renewable energy to charitable organizations tackling mental health and addictions. We seek to provide a continuum of supports from one-to-many educational offerings to one-on-one advisory supports to capital through our network of impact investing funds.

Bootcamps

SVX seeks to build capacity for impact ventures and organizations through hands-on education through cohort-based bootcamp programs. We deliver these bootcamps on an ongoing basis on a sector or regional basis, often in collaboration with partners across Canada, supported by high quality content, coaches, and peers to maximize the impact of the bootcamp experience.

WOSEN

WOSEN START for Eastern Ontario is designed for women and gender diverse entrepreneurs who are exploring social enterprise as a model to launch a product or service that generates community benefit. By the end of the program participants will have a deeper understanding of social enterprise, a refined concept for their venture and will have developed transferrable skills and an action plan to help them with their next steps. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet with experienced coaches who will help them continue their social entrepreneurship journey.

Assessments

You have a great organization or enterprise, and you need to raise capital to start or scale your impact. But you aren’t sure where to start. SVX can provide investment readiness assessments for enterprises and organizations seeking to understand potential needs and opportunities for a capital raising strategy.

We work one-on-one with organizations and enterprises to build investment readiness and support impact offering development. We provide a range of supports including:

  • Strategic education to management and Boards on the regulations and opportunities related to capital raising
  • Business model review
  • Financial model development
  • Impact management strategy development
  • Pitch preparation
  • Full offering development from feasibility to capital strategy and offering design to completion of capital raise

Place-based Impact Investing Funds

We manage a small set of place-based impact investing funds, and we coordinate a network of place-based impact funds in Canada. These funds can provide debt and/or equity financing to start or scale enterprises, organizations or projects in geographic regions, particularly in Ontario.
