Building a business with purpose like Natural Pod takes a great team and great partners. It’s just one of the reasons why we work with Vancity as a financing resource. We’re proud to be part of the Vancity community and to have their support in helping to cultivate our natural play community here in British Columbia and all over North America.
Vancity has supported Natural Pod in its evolving growth—initially a microloan helped the company expand into the educational market. More recently, a line of credit enabled Natural Pod to continue manufacturing its products from a facility on Vancouver Island, hire local people and use locally sourced and environmentally friendly materials.
Vancity has also offered advice on cost-effective business models and connected the company with other social venture businesses.
Bridgitte Alomes, owner of Natural Pod, appreciates Vancity’s holistic perspective and its support of mission-oriented entrepreneurs like herself. “Vancity is a progressive pioneer in doing things differently. It’s so important for us to be aligned with a pioneering organization that shares our values.”
Thank you Vancity!
