"Silicon Valley Bank clearly understood technology startups, having dealt with them so often. And that’s very different from the traditional Canadian banks, which have played very little in this space, if at all."
The bank of the world’s most innovative companies and their investors announced that Canada’s Minister of Finance has issued an order authorizing Silicon Valley Bank to establish a lending branch in Canada, which will commence operations after it receives the approval of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions. Once granted, Silicon Valley Bank will be able to provide in-market commercial banking solutions to private and public technology and life science companies and their investors across Canada.
