Canadian equity crowdfunding platform where all investors can invest in Canadian companies.
Kickstarter, Indiegogo and Fundrazr are all terrific platforms for raising money from donors or potential customers. Theyve been used to fund awesome coolers, beehives, videogames and even a potato salad. They are amazing ways to help determine if theres a market, build awareness and aggregate customers and donors. Unfortunately, crowdfunding is a solution that doesnt work for a lot of entrepreneurs. What if you want to finance a winery, or raise the money to invest in higher yield fruit trees? What if you want to finance the building of a boutique hotel, or plan to buy a mobile crane? Even with a great product or solution, most companies are unable to take advantage of the crowd. Equity Crowdfunding is different. It allows companies to raise money from investors instead of customers. That give companies access to a huge new source of capital, and investors access to interesting and local investment alternatives. While its called "Equity Crowdfunding", companies can issue more than just shares. Small Starter can also help you issue debt instruments or debentures that convert into shares.
