Saskatchewan is a Canadian province that borders the United States to the south. Grassland covers its southern plains, and to the north are the rugged rock of the Canadian Shield plateau, coniferous forests, rivers and lakes. Regina, the provincial capital, is home to the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, with exhibits on natural history and the people of Canada’s First Nations.
Starting a business is a dream for many people, but not all of these people will make that dream a reality. This is because starting a business can be daunting. It can be tricky, difficult, and even a little scary. But there is much more to it than this — running a business is exciting, rewarding, and a source of pride and accomplishment. Running a business is even something that is necessary to our society, especially here in Saskatchewan.
The province of Saskatchewan — its economy, its culture, and its broader social identity — is dependent on small and medium-sized businesses. These organizations make such a contribution in terms of GDP, employment, and general quality of life that they deserve all the support and assistance they can get.
And yet, too many businesses in Saskatchewan and across Canada do not get this support. In some cases, this is because they have poor credit or a limited history of operation. In others, it’s simply because mainstream funding providers do not have the knowledge and expertise of niche industries.
SharpShooter Funding® recognized this problem. The team at SharpShooter decided to offer an alternative, and to provide a new way for small businesses in the province to receive the funding they need. This is the SharpShooter difference:
This is the kind of advantage we could be offering to your business in Saskatchewan. Read on to learn more or head to the application form right here on the website to get started.
Saskatchewan is Canada’s heartland, nestled snugly in the center of the country, between Manitoba and Alberta. The central location of the province is reflected in its position within Canada’s economic landscape. Although sometimes overlooked, Saskatchewan is of vital importance to Canadian GDP and to Canadian society as a whole.
For centuries, the economy of Saskatchewan has been based upon its natural resources. This continues to be reflected today, with well over a quarter of the province’s GDP supplied by mining, quarrying, and oil and gas firms, with a further 8.8% provided by agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting.
In fact, Saskatchewan continues to be the most attractive province in the country for investment in mining operations.
But what about investment in other areas of the economy? After all, in the 21st century, diversity and flexibility are everything.
Well, this also seems promising. While overall investment in the province has fallen a little after a peak in 2014, investment in businesses outside of the mining, quarrying, and oil and gas fields has risen significantly. This is great news for business owners and residents across the province and demonstrates Saskatchewan’s position as a diverse, modern, and highly resilient economy.
Of course, investment alone will not achieve the province’s business aims. What about small businesses and other entities that cannot attract enough investment? These businesses need to find funding in other ways.
This is the aim of SharpShooter Funding®. We make sure businesses across Saskatchewan and beyond have access to the funding they need and that they can enjoy a level playing field. Who benefits from this? Business owners — and all Canadians in one way or another.
We Can Design A Funding Program For Your Small Or Medium Size Business.
Businesses need funding, but they also need flexibility and agility. In order to achieve this, they need the freedom to do what they want with the funding they receive. In some cases, SharpShooter Funding® will provide tailored funding packages designed for specific uses. However, in most instances, we will not ringfence your funding. This gives you complete freedom to spend it in any way that will benefit your business.
Here are a few examples of what is possible when your Saskatchewan business gains the funding it needs.
As your business grows, your team needs to grow alongside it. You also need to be able to offer the training required to meet the evolving needs of your customer base. Funding makes this possible.
Day-to-day costs can quickly add up, and it may be difficult to divert the funds necessary to meet those costs. With flexible funding from SharpShooter, your business achieves the necessary liquidity.
From time to time, suppliers may offer discounted rates and other special offers that can really save your business money. It is up to you to take advantage of these offers. And, funding gives you that opportunity.
In order to reach new customers, you need to develop new products. However, you also need to be able to market and publicize these new products. Funding gives you the chance to invest in them and to push them, increasing your long-term revenue.
Remember, these are just a few of the advantages you can enjoy when your business gets funded. Reach out to our team to learn more about how our tailored funding packages can make all the difference for your organization.
