The Rendez-vous de la Baie is very pleased to announce that the Digby-Clare CBDC is the sponsor of the month for January 2013. Their generous contribution provides everyone with free access to the Acadian Interpretive Centre museum halls.
At Digby-Clare CBDC, we assist in the creation of small businesses and in the expansion and modernization of existing businesses by providing financial and technical services to entrepreneurs:
• Financial assistance to a maximum of $150,000 is available in the form of loans, loan guarantees and equity financing to existing and aspiring entrepreneurs;
• Business counselling & advice is available to small businesses. We help businesses to succeed and therefore we give high priority to the advisory role of our mandate;
• Entrepreneurship development and training to individuals and small business owners/managers is available in many of our offices;
• Technical assistance usually takes the form of guidance and coaching, and sometimes advocating on behalf of our clients to other lending establishments or regulatory agencies.
One of the keys to our success is that investment decisions are made by an independent Board of Directors sensitive to the needs of the community. The directors are volunteers, generally business men and women, who believe in our communities and possess an outstanding commitment to making them a better place in which to live and work.
Access to the Acadian Interpretive Centre (Museum) at Rendez-vous de la Baie is now free of charge. New since 2012, the admission fees have been replaced by a Donation box, as well as a new Corporate Sponsorship Program.
