Canada has a unique financial regulatory structure where each province is pretty much on its own. But Canada has not shied away from the enormous benefits of crowdfunding, and in fact the equity crowdfunding platform Crowdcube is poised to go live in Canada soon.
Creating an efficient capital allocation structure, fostering entrepreneurs and growing their economy is on the minds of our friends up North just as it is in every part of the developed (and developing) world.
For those in Ontario a group of sponsors including the Toronto Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the law firm Cassels Brock, MNP and BoardSuite have put together an evening event to discuss today’s crowdfunding environment in Canada. Topics will include How to Prepare for Crowdfunding and an update on portals operating in Canada.
Current speakers will include:
- Brian Koscak, Attorney – Cassels Brock
- Christopher Charelsworth – HiveWire
- Gil Michel-Garcia – WAFU
- Matthew McGrath – Optimize Capital
- Stephen Warden – MNP LLP
- Oscar Jofre – BoardSuite
The event is scheduled to take place on September 11th at the offices of MNP, 300-111 Richmond Street West in Toronto. Doors open at 4:30PM.
