Leading the Way:
Saskatchewan’s Emerging Equity Crowdfunding Environment
Wednesday, May 28th, 2014
7: 30 am – Registration & Continental Breakfast
8:00-9:30 am – Equity CF Forum
10:00-11:30 am – To Equity CF or Not to Equity CF? Presentation
10:00 am – Press Conference announcing new Equity CF Portal
Saskatchewan is the first and only Canadian province to have approved an equity-crowdfunding specific exemption from securities law to raise capital, and on May 28th we will launch its first marketplace for that equity capital to be raised – an equity crowdfunding portal. As Canada’s entrepreneurial hot spot, Saskatchewan leads the way in this newest niche in the financing continuum.
If you’re an entrepreneur seeking capital, an angel investor interested in equity crowdfunding, or a service-provider wondering how the equity CF industry might benefit you … this is the event to attend!
