Local and Sustainable
Local Food and Beverage companies must continually innovate to remain competitive in a global market. At Coho Provisions, we want to help fund, and grow more businesses in our backyard.
We want to remove the barriers that limit entrepreneurs from succeeding, by: providing access to capital, identifying mentorship opportunities, helping with the 'back-office', and securing access to kitchen space.
A Streamlined and Transparent Process
Start the process by reaching out with an email, and telling us what you do. If interested, we will follow by asking you to complete a funding application. The funding application will ask you some more in depth questions about your business (vision, traction, growth, exit strategy).
We will select companies to present at monthly dinner meetings. Appropriate due diligence will follow based on interest of the fund.
We strive to provide an honest, and transparent process throughout. At the outset, an initial coffee meeting will be scheduled with a member of our investment fund. That person will remain on point throughout the process.
If at any stage we choose to not move forward with the investment opportunity, we will tell you promptly with the reasons why. We know how hard the 'waiting game' can be for potential investment and want you to focus on the right things for your business.
Size and Scale
We aim to diversify our portfolio, and as such, will invest up to $50k CAD in the initial investment (with potential further investment in later rounds).
We prefer to not be the leading investor.
We can invest in Canadian companies in Equity, Royalty, or Debt based deals.
