C R E AT E D BY BCBusiness I N PA RT N E RS H I P W IT H OKR FINANCIAL without giving up control. To date, OKR has performed roughly 120 loans with zero defaults. Leading OKR Financial are found- ers and managing partners Jason Neale and Randy Thompson, finance and early stage growth and technology experts who understand the needs of growing companies. "We saw a need, and we are happy with how the fund has created a win for both investors who are getting quarterly yield and the companies that get early access to capital they can't get anywhere else," Thompson says. With a minimum investment of $10,000 and minimum two-year investment com- mitment, investors can expect low risk and consistent high return opportunities. Over the last three and a half to four years, OKR provided quality distributions to all its investors with an average return of 15.5 percent annually. "What makes us unique is that the fund is run by former entrepreneurs who understand the balance between risk for the investor and achievable milestones by the entrepreneur," Neale says. OKR has been delivering solid returns for investors and novel, flexible financing solutions for Canadian entrepreneurs since 2015. OKR raised $10 million in the fund in its first year, which currently sits at $60 million+ and is growing consistently. ■ P R O M O T E D C O N T E N T For further information on becoming an investor or a borrower, contact us today online at okrfinancial.com or by phone at 403-754-4334.
