10 Carden (10C) is the hub for community activators and changemakers in Guelph. We welcome groups and individuals into an inclusive community of social change organizations working across sectors and engaging in collaborative work to improve our community. Our tangible offering is effective downtown coworking and event meeting space and collaboration. We are offering a 3% and 4% Community Bond to enable the purchase and redevelopment of 42 Carden Street, a large 15,000 sq ft asset on the premiere street in downtown Guelph. As an investor, your investment earns you an annual return, is backed by a 2nd mortgage on the physical property and has a social impact.
10C is making space for community connections that foster: collaborations, new ideas, professional and social networks that build urban integration, resilience and establish the scaffolding for Guelph residents to work on complex issues together. All of these are important as Guelph (and other cities) grows in population due to provincial mandating, and also as challenges of urban living become more complex – water, energy, access to civic space, diversity, direct democracy and social inclusion. Our members span all sectors from environment, social justice, arts, education, entrepreneurship, and community development.
Individual loans of up to $5000 ($10,000 for second time borrowers) are made using a character based lending decision, where the abilities, skills and commitment of the applicant in conjunction with the strength of the business plan are key decision criteria. ACCESS funds made up of investments from socially minded individuals and organizations are used to guarantee the loans. The loans are disbursed through our financial partners, Alterna Savings and CIBC. ACCESS clients are typically entrepreneurs who have been running a business less than two years and or just starting a new business. The borrower may have no credit history, or may have a poor credit record due to unemployment, illness or unforeseen life event.

DC Capital, the investment arm of the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) is injecting $50 million into women-led technology firms as part of its efforts to support women entrepreneurs. “Women-led firms are vital to Canada’s prosperity and competitiveness,” says Alison Nankivell, Vice President, Funds and Co-investment, BDC Capital. “Recognizing the need for financial and non-financial support for female founders, we are proud to launch several new initiatives to encourage women tech founders who are starting new companies, growing existing ones, creating jobs and triggering innovation.” Of the funds, $40 million will be used to create a new program for women-led tech firms. The program will include both venture and growth capital and will be open to new and existing BDC Capital clients as well as to graduates of partner accelerators. Initial deployment will start by the end of 2016 and the program will target high-potential and quickly growing female-led tech companies. BDC Capital will allocate an additional $10 million to support regional initiatives beginning with the MaRS Investment Accelerator Fund to form a new women’s pre-seed and seed fund and increase depth of network and resources for women founders. With its anchor investment, BDC is seeking to raise additional capital from other interested investors.

In developing countries, there is a shortage of talented, educated workers. This shortage impedes a country’s development efforts. It also drives up wages for graduates. In Ghana, higher education can multiply a young person’s earning potential by up to 5 times. Despite these large returns, higher education is out of reach for the majority of high school graduates simply because they are unable to pay for it. Traditional student loans are not available and scholarships and financial aid are grossly insufficient to meet the level of need. Brighter Investment allows you to invest in the post secondary education of a cohort of talented students with high earning potential. After graduation, students repay a fixed percentage of their income for a set period. Income based repayment means some students will repay more than others. For a group of students however, average returns can be reliably estimated based on statistical data for average income,employment and graduation rates. Income dependent repayments mean that students never end up with a debt they can’t repay. Because wage levels are relatively stable and hedged against inflation, it also means we can repay you a stable, competitive return projected at 9%. On top of that, you are directly contributing to alleviating poverty and helping students and their families to live longer, healthier and happier lives.
Under the leadership of Co-operatives and Mutuals Canada (CMC) and with the support of a dedicated Committee, this Fund is being organized in response to a major challenge facing co-operatives and mutuals: the challenge of accessing outside capital investment. The need for such a Fund has long been recognized by the sector. The Fund intends to partner with co-operatives and mutuals across Canada to leverage resources that are available for new or developing co-operatives. The Fund will not duplicate or replace existing funding or development programs. The Fund will operate with the dual objectives of: (a) maximizing the amount of funds that are available to support the sector through the provision of loans and subordinated debt, and (b) providing investing co-operatives and mutuals with a reasonable rate of return. The Fund will reinvest its earnings, beyond those that are paid out in the form of dividends and those that must be retained to ensure the liquidity of the Fund. The flow of capital will go back into the sector to support the development of Canadian co-operatives and mutuals.
