Finance your business

Financing is a critical step in the process of starting or developing a business. At Desjardins, you'll get the help of an account manager who can give you the information you need to make your projects succeed and recommend the financing products most appropriate for your business.

This section can help you learn how to prepare a business plan, outline project costs and project funding, learn about the various types of financing and apply for financing.

Before meeting with your Desjardins advisor, make sure you have documented your application and written up your business plan.

Create a table listing your business's financing needs and sources of funding.

There are 3 types of business financing available: debt financing, equity financing and government programs.

Once you've determined your needs and selected the appropriate type of financing, you can move to the next step, writing and presenting your request for financing.
