With this investment, Merchant Growth will further develop its sales & marketing departments as well as its technology teams to offer new products that are consistent with its mission to provide the most convenient and accessible financing experience for Canadian small businesses.

David Gens, Founder, President & CEO of Merchant Growth notes: "The COVID pandemic has disrupted all sectors of the economy, but none more so than the small business sector. While extraordinary government stimulus programs have helped support the sector, these programs are transitory and small businesses will be forced to transition to other capital sources in the years to come. We want to do everything possible to ensure Canadian small businesses have access to capital once stimulus programs are no longer in place, and this funding helps us bolster our organization capabilities so that we can ensure we're ready to deliver that".
