Nick Fry, Manager, Fraser Valley Entrepreneurship Centre, BDC

After over 25 years at BDC I have helped hundreds of entrepreneurs build their businesses not only through financing solutions but by connecting them to our game changing Advisory Services.

My approach, which I try to instill in my team, is simple. Spend the time to get to know the business and the management team and then ensure they get access to the solutions that fit their unique needs.

Next step is to keep the relationship intact and value added by staying in contact and providing advice, insight, and resources as often as we can.
