The Quebecor Fund’s contribution to eligible business models is a reimbursable investment applicable to the business model financing package. The minimum contribution for each business model is $50,000, to a maximum of $300,000. The investment provided must not exceed 40% of the overall financing package.
Recovery of the investment takes place over a period of thirty-six (36) to sixty (60) months. The business model must anticipate the aforementioned financial aid recovery by protecting the investment and anticipating a return on investment, which will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
Female shareholding additional contribution
Quebecor Fund is offering specific funding to promote female shareholding in the partner companies that receive support from the Export Assistance Program (EXAP). Companies that have had their fair market value assessed by an independent expert can obtain an additional contribution of up to $80,000 from Quebecor Fund to cover interest payments for five years on a loan to finance the transfer of shares to female personnel.
