BDC: SME hero

Not nearly enough noise is made about the Business Development Bank of Canada. The investment professionals are dedicated and sincere, and among the more pro-entrepreneur I've encountered. Plus, they often spring for donuts.

BDC is dedicated not only to venture capital investing, but also to fostering the growth of Canadian SMEs in all segments. Which means they are dedicated by proxy to, well, me.

Today's release announcing another $330 million fund to invest in Canadian SMEs sends a much-needed message of support to a business community that produces more than 50% of the country's GDP. The fund is a joint creation of BDC and Caisse de depot et placement of Quebec.
Go check it out and remember to send them the plaudits they deserve.
