In Australia, the Australian Small Scale Offerings Board is operational since 2005 with A$125M raised, Seedups has raised $65M for 1400 entrepreneurs in the UK, while the JOBS ACT opened up doors in the US this summer. 

In a Canadian startup landscape where VC fund size is compressed, number of funds is decreasing, and with less funding compared to the US, crowdfunding is an alternative solution for early-stage startups. In Québec, equity crowdfunding could allow Quebecers to invest in QC startups, raise funds to support growing companies, and attract also a crowd to support the company, propulsed by social media.

On Oct 2nd 2012, with ICF-Quebec, with the support of FMC-Law, StartUpCanada and Direction Informatique, MTL NewTech presents an exclusive equity crowdfunding edition to explore how crowdfunding can propulse the Quebec economy. Mix with technology entrepreneurs, engineers, media, investors, thought leaders, and see what crowdfunding means for the startup ecosystem.

  • Support equity crowdfunding by signing the online petition.
