Entrepreneur Equity Fund
The purpose of the Entrepreneur Equity Fund (EEF) is to enable and assist individual CAFN Citizens to start, acquire, expand or improve business enterprises in the Yukon. You may propose to start a new business or purchase and operate an existing business.
The EEF aims to financially support CAFN Citizens to pursue business activities by contributing to their equity in the venture. By contributing to equity, the Fund intends to help entrepreneurs lever additional financing from banks and other sources if required.
The EEF has three components to which eligible citizens may apply:
1. Equity Matching – provides 50% of eligible capital costs in a business venture, to a maximum of $10,000 per applicant
2. Business Studies – provides 50% of eligible costs to prepare business plans or conduct feasibility and other studies related to a business venture, to a maximum of $10,000 per applicant
3. Trades & Crafts – provides 50% of eligible capital costs to a maximum of $500 per year to Citizens who are self-employed in providing services or products for sale
