Event on 2015-09-29 13:00:00
VanFUNDING 2015 is the leading Crowdfunding conference in Western Canada for innovative ventures and businesses seeking to raise seed and growth capital from online crowdfunding markets. Join the National Crowdfunding Association of Canada, sponsors and presenting partners on Tuesday, September 29 in downtown Vancouver for an immersive and interactive half-day event including TEDx style storytelling, start-up pitches, panel/fireside discussions and mentoring followed by a networking reception. This is an exclusive opportunity to learn, network and be mentored by crowdfunding-fintech experts and investors in Canada interested to help businesses achieve funding success and scale.
The British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) and Group of 6 provinces recently adopted the Start-up Exemption on May 14, 2015, enabling startups and early-stage companies in these jurisdictions to now raise up to 0,000 per calendar year through online funding portals. Crowdfunding markets and fintech companies are exploding with entrepreneurs, investors, third party providers and experts who are keen to take advantage of a promising and brand new fundraising channel for small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
Following the success of the sold out inaugural 2015 Canadian Crowdfunding Summit on March 3 in Toronto, VanFUNDING 2015 is about igniting venture funding opportunities in Western Canada together with industry and ecosystem partners to share the newest developments, thought leadership, and assist and connect entrepreneurs that are actively raising capital.
