SEMANTIC ANALYSIS

The owner has associated the following topics to the website.

The results of our semantic analysis are shown below using the website's language.

They are the main concepts covered by bdc.ca.

Each concept has a confidence score. The higher it is, the more important the topic is relative to the page.

Topics
Business Development Bank of Canada Confidence: 90% Arrow up

The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) is a federal Crown corporation wholly owned by the Government of Canada.

Its mandate is to help create and develop Canadian businesses through financing, growth and transition capital, venture capital and advisory services, with a focus on small and medium-sized enterprises.

Venture capital Confidence: 82% Arrow up

Venture capital (VC) is a type of private equity, a form of financing that is provided by firms or funds to small, early-stage, emerging firms that are deemed to have high growth potential, or which have demonstrated high growth (in terms of number of employees, annual revenue, or both).

Venture capital firms or funds invest in these early-stage companies in exchange for equity–an ownership stake–in the companies they invest in.

Venture capitalists take on the risk of financing risky start-ups in the hopes that some of the firms they support will become successful.

The start-ups are usually based on an innovative technology or business model and they are usually from the high technology industries, such as information technology (IT), social media or biotechnology.

Finance Confidence: 71% Arrow up

Finance is a field that deals with the study of investments.

It includes the dynamics of assets and liabilities over time under conditions of different degrees of uncertainty and risk.

Finance can also be defined as the science of money management.

Finance aims to price assets based on their risk level and their expected rate of return.

Finance can be broken into three different sub-categories: public finance, corporate finance and personal finance.

Entrepreneurship Confidence: 71% Arrow up

Entrepreneurship has traditionally been defined as the process of designing, launching and running a new business, which typically begins as a small business, such as a startup company, offering a product, process or service for sale or hire, and the people who do so are called 'entrepreneurs'.

It has been defined as the "...capacity and willingness to develop, organize, and manage a business venture along with any of its risks in order to make a profit." While definitions of entrepreneurship typically focus on the launching and running of businesses, due to the high risks involved in launching a start-up, a significant proportion of businesses have to close, due to a "...lack of funding, bad business decisions, an economic crisis -- or a combination of all of these" or due to lack of market demand.

In the 2000s, the definition of "entrepreneurship" has been expanded to explain how and why some individuals (or teams) identify opportunities, evaluate them as viable, and then decide to exploit them, whereas others do not, and, in turn, how entrepreneurs use these opportunities to develop new products or services, launch new firms or even new industries and create wealth.

Recent advances stress the fundamentally uncertain nature of the entrepreneurial process, because although opportunities exist their existence cannot be discovered or identified prior to their actualization into profits.

What appears as a real opportunity ex ante might actually be a non-opportunity or one that cannot be actualized by entrepreneurs lacking the necessary business skills, financial or social capital.
