Find Funding!

Use the right tools to find the right capital

This Fundica search tool was developed in partnership with SBDC’s Finance Center to pinpoint the best sources of government funding and support to start, grow and scale your business.

The tool’s intelligent filters and advanced personalization features enable you to quickly find grants, tax credits, government loans, loan guarantees, and other solutions that meet your business needs.

Government Loans

Government loans are repayable financial contributions that generally have more favorable terms and conditions. These loans are usually paid out before the investment period.

Government Grants

Grants are non-repayable financial contributions that support specific initiatives. Provided to encourage certain investments and are generally paid out before or during the investment period.

Tax Credits

Tax credits are expenditure refunds or potential tax reductions or credits to encourage certain investments. They are usually received after the investment is made.

Loan Guarantees

When the government acts as a guarantor of a loan, it agrees to reimburse, in part or in full, the amounts granted to the company in case of default by the borrower. Loan guarantees are provided before a loan is granted.
