They are circles of influence and ‘go to resources’ for small businesses and investors to connect with, share and learn about crowdfunding via locally hosted events and initiatives. CFAs are specialists and plugged into an international network of shared resources, thought leadership, and industry professionals striving to cultivate and shape the future of crowdfunding in Canada and beyond.

I'm thrilled to help drive the growth of crowdfunding in Canada, and empower more Canadians to fund what matters to them!" – Ayah Norris, Canada Marketing and Community, Indiegogo
