The principals and ADS of MIP have literally hundreds of years of experience in a wide range of industries and bring particular expertise in preparing companies to finance growth. From start-up to ramp-up to scale-up to exit MIP can pull together the right team and resources to effectively plan and execute.

Particular specialties are facilitating growth capital, management buy-outs, mergers and acquisitions, and adapting business plans to a fast changing business environment. MIP can also facilitate other capital events in companies related to transition and/or succession of entrepreneurial founders.
MIC is proud to be re-inventing the relationship between entrepreneurs and capital sources!
Why Trail BC for MIP Head Quarters?
Part of the vision of MIP is to start recovery/rural retreat centres that act as a new platform for community mixed with a co-working, accelerator, circular, and private equity plus a new banking model opportunity to empower rural communities. The model provides a direct path for small communities to access capital markets and to evolve as COVID-19 and other trends drive migration from larger to smaller centres.
Dreamers will no longer need to go to the big city to access conscious capitalism.
