“My disability doesn’t affect my business ability.”

If you’re a person with a disability, self-employment can be a great option.

In good times or bad, it can offer people with disabilities the opportunity to create a work situation adapted to their particular needs. If you’ve got the right commitment and attitude, starting a business could be the perfect way to get into the workforce.

If you’re a person with a disability with a great business idea come see us at Community Futures.

 

“There’s a great little business I’d love to buy. But how?”

Great little businesses can be great little investments.

And in times like these, with unemployment rates climbing, buying an established business can make a lot of sense. If you have the dedication, commitment and creativity to be your own boss, self-employment could be exactly what you’re looking for.

If you’re interested in buying a successful business, come see us at Community Futures. We’ve just launched an exciting new line-up of loan products — including BizBuyout — especially for the entrepreneur who sees opportunity waiting.

 

“I think franchising is the best way to grow. Am I nuts?”

No more nuts than the thousands of other franchise owners in Canada.

If you’ve got the right kind of business, franchising is a proven way to achieve success. And in uncertain economic times, it can make sense to get support from an established corporation.

If you’re thinking of franchising your business, come see us at Community Futures. We’ve just launched an exciting new line-up of loans products – including FranchiseRoute – especially for entrepreneurs wanting to explore growth options.

 

“It's a great time to grow my business. Really?”

Guess what – now is exactly the time to grow your business!

An economic downturn can mean opportunity for those who are focused, persistent and creative. Maybe your competition is pulling back, making more space for you and creating the perfect opening for expansion into new markets.

If you need to grow, come see us at Community Futures. We’ve just launched an exciting new line-up of loan products — including GlobalReach — especially for the forward-thinking entrepreneur looking for new places to grow.

 

“I'm thinking of starting a business. Am I crazy?”

Crazy like a fox, maybe.

You’d be amazed how many successful businesses were started during a recession. If you plan carefully and work hard, this could be the perfect time to launch your dream. Supplies may be cheaper, good people more available and customers could be looking for change. 

If you’ve got a dream, come see us at Community Futures. We’ve just launched an exciting new line-up of loan products — including NewBiz — especially for the start-up entrepreneur with a great idea and the drive to make it reality.

 

“Good jobs are drying up. Now what?”

Hey — sometimes necessity is the mother of invention.

If you think you have what it takes, maybe you can channel your ideas, energy and drive into becoming your own boss. An economic downturn is the perfect environment for fresh thinking, out-of-the-box solutions – and youthful perspectives.

If you’re a young person with a business idea, come see us at Community Futures. We’ve just launched an exciting new line-up of loan products — including NextGen — especially for the young entrepreneur who wants a chance to make a start.

 

“I need cash fast to seize a great opportunity. Who can help?”

In business, there are times when you just need a bit of cash to be able to react to a great opportunity. And during an economic downturn, the businesses that survive are often the ones that continue to pursue opportunities and keep moving forward.

If you see an opportunity that could help your established business, come see us at Community Futures. We’ve just launched an exciting new line-up of loan products — including Opportunity Loan — especially for the quick-thinking entrepreneur ready to seize an opportunity.

 

“Now’s not the time to invest in technology and training. Or is it?”

You bet it is. During these tough economic times, investing in innovation can be more important than ever for businesses wanting to stay competitive and cater to a shrinking clientele. Developing new products and markets, value-adding, or training staff to use new techniques or equipment could give you the edge you need to survive.

If you’re ready to take that extra step, come see us at Community Futures. We’ve just launched an exciting new line-up of loan products — including TechBlazer — especially for the innovative entrepreneur wanting to stay competitive.
