About Us

My name is Steph Sharp, MBA, CFN, ICD.D the founder of the first Small Business FinanceForum event in Vancouver for small to medium-sized businesses. I’ve spent the last 30 years developing innovative, sustainable, financial solutions for business leaders and my real passion is empowering management leaders with financial acumen.

I’ve developed Neurofinance tools which have allowed over 300 executives, directors, and business owners leaders to better understand and grow their businesses. But my experience with clients tells me that company owners struggle to finance the next level of growth. With all of the attention on startups and early stage companies, I wanted a unique event tailor made for established profitable businesses that need financing to get to the next level of growth.

Just like Sylvester Stallone in The Expendables, I’ve assembled a crack team of trusted experts who will teach you how to pitch banks and get the money you need to grow your business – quickly, easily and with lower risk. You can even apply to be a Pitch Finalist and make your pitch to real bankers for up to $2M.

With 2 exciting days of learning, networking, and pitching, this is YOUR event if you:

  • Want to double your business in the next few years and are wondering how to finance the growth.
  • Are looking towards retirement and wondering how to finance an exit
  • Need money to hire people so you are working on your business and not in it.
  • Have ever been frustrated when trying to deal with the banks.
