About Niagara Business & Innovation Fund
The Niagara Business & Innovation Fund was launched in October 2014 in response to emerging economic and business development needs in Niagara. The NBIF is the registered trade name of the South Niagara Community Futures Development Program which is now in its 34th year of creating opportunities for small and medium sized businesses in the Niagara Region. The Fund invests in a wide range of business platforms from existing enterprise to new and emerging innovative ideas that will help transform the Niagara economy.
We work with a number of Niagara stakeholders to maximize impact to Niagara. The Investment Fund generally invests up to $150,000 in both debt and equity financing structures that meet our due diligence and credit requirements. In exceptional circumstances, we can invest up to $250,000. Our strategy is to maximize investments with leveraged and co-investment partners.
