NACO | Sep 28, 2022 This year's report analyzes Canadian angel investment totaling $262.1 million, a record recovery from 2020’s pandemic low of $102.9 million. For the first time in our history, we’re leveraging our international platform to spotlight the achievements of 27 women trailblazers. These leaders are at the forefront of Canada’s innovation economy. Together, we are working to transform inertia into action, barriers into opportunities and gaps into indicators of how much more is possible. This year‘s report is an in-depth, data-driven analysis that highlights persistent regional inequities. This is not just academic. It is a lived, day-to-day experience for Canada’s entrepreneurs. This is especially true for those that face systemic barriers and limited local pathways to mentorship and funding networks. In these uncertain times, the economic and social imperative to take bold action cannot be overstated. See:  OSC Publishes 2022 Investment Funds Survey Results Data However, change is coming. In communities across the country, innovation leaders are putting in place the building blocks needed to support entrepreneurs within emerging provincial and territorial ecosystems. Together we are creating a more collaborative, nationally accessible entrepreneurial economy. As NACO celebrates its 20th anniversary, we strive to build a future that ...

OSC | Sep 14, 2022 The Investment Fund Survey (IFS) is an annual survey sent to more than 400 investment fund managers (IFMs) registered in Ontario to collect data on approximately 5,700 prospectus-qualified and exempt investment funds with at least $10 million in net assets. The collection of such data will allow for more comprehensive oversight of the Canadian investment fund industry and delivers on the OSC’s mandate of contributing to the stability of the financial system. See:  Why Data is the Lifeblood of a Modern Regulator Each year the annual data from the IFS is shared by: providing aggregated survey data as a downloadable CSV file on a no-names basis, and publishing charts that allow stakeholders to see certain insights from the data. This data is shared to promote greater transparency, in a manner that protects IFM confidentiality.

Guest Post | Sep 28, 2022 The year is 2022, and nothing is impossible. People are slowly shifting from regular paper currency to digital one, which is quite a revolutionary idea. It has made things easier and processes faster. Cryptocurrency has now entered every segment of human life. A few years ago, no one could have imagined buying the citizenship of a country through cryptocurrency. However, now it’s totally possible. Some countries across the globe allow you to buy citizenship by investing in real estate through cryptocurrency. One prominent example is that of El Salvador. It has started accepting crypto payments in almost all of its business processes. However, getting citizenship simply by investing in real estate through cryptocurrencies is a bit tough for other countries. Instead, the investor has to sell off his cryptos and then use this money to be a part of the citizenship by investment (CBI) program. Simply put, the money is transferred to the bank account, which proves its legality. Once all this is done, the investor can get his hands on the second passport. However, as it is a new concept, buying citizenship through cryptocurrency may get a little complicated. There could be lots ...

FP | Kevin Orland | Sep 21, 2022 Royal Bank of Canada is merging its RBC Ventures partnership group with its RBCx technology banking and innovation arm in a bid to capture more business from entrepreneurs at all stages of their startups’ growth. Sid Paquette, who has led both RBCx and Ventures since April, will head the combined business, the Toronto-based bank said in a statement Wednesday. The new RBCx will remain part of Royal Bank’s personal and commercial banking business, headed by Neil McLaughlin. The merger creates a single entity that can provide startups with everything from banking services and assistance from a group of specialists and technologists who can help them scale their businesses to access to capital including venture investments and even outright acquisitions. See:  Plaid Officially Opens it’s Canadian Office and Announces RBC Data Sharing Agreement RBC Research: Preparing for Hyperdrive – Themes that will define our new future RBCx has about 4,000 technology clients across Canada, and RBC Ventures has supported startups including the Dr.Bill medical-billing software, the Ownr business-launching service and the Mydoh money-management app for kids. “This is really the first time that these sorts of skills have been integrated into one practice,” ...

Wealth Professional | Noelle Boughton | Sep 27, 2022 Purpose Advisor Solutions (PAS) is partnering with a new wealth firm that is using Nobel Prize winning science to modernize the Canadian wealth management sector. It’s part of Purpose’s vision to support more small, independent firms coming into the industry. Origin Wealth is a new portfolio management firm based in Vancouver, which wants to provide an investing experience that empowers Canadians’ decision-making.

See:  Clearco Hires Advisor to Evaluate Strategic Options and Exits Foreign Markets Gans likened this to the registered investment advisor space, which is growing in the U.S. Jeff Gans, CEO, Purpose Advisor Solutions One of our beliefs is that the Canadian market needs more entrepreneurs in the investment space. There are a lot of big providers, but we believe there’s a need to have more new, innovative, independent advisors. We offer a platform for independent minded and entrepreneurial advisors who want to build their own advice business.  We provide them with the tools they need to manage a ...

Arthur0x on Medium | Sep 25, 2022 Today, the gaming market is worth over $300B (according to both Accenture and BitKraft) with an expectation of 12% annual growth rate from 2022 to 2028. Overview: Our thesis is that the integration of Web 3 elements into gaming will likely usher in a new era of gaming dubbed “Play-to-Own”. We posit that unlocking the economic activity within games will drastically expand the Total Addressable Market (“TAM”) for the gaming industry as well as supercharge the value creation. See:  FitFi and Web3: Step App launches on ‘move2earn’ protocol Potential: In 2021, we caught a glimpse of the potential of Web3 Gaming via Axie Infinity’s rise to fame. Popularizing the Play-to-Earn (P2E) model most of us are familiar with, Axie has grown from 10k DAUs in early 2021 to a peak of 3 million DAUs and brought in $1.3B revenue in 2021 according to Nansen. What’s more surprising is that Axie was still in its infancy Interest and ecosystems:  Games that integrated NFTs have experienced much greater success in terms of player retention, growth and revenues compared to their Web2 counterparts. We are already beginning to see a myriad of projects launching with innovative ...

Sep 28, 2022 People in scrubs rushing back and forth to treat patients in distress is a stereotypical image of hospitals. It is no surprise that many hospitals and other healthcare facilities are experiencing managerial difficulties. Not all organizations spend money on enhancing their internal procedures. That, however, ought not to be the situation. Great medical practitioners are only as effective as the administrative and managerial staff behind them. 1. Clinic Management System Managing a healthcare organization's medical, administrative, legal, financial, and regulatory aspects is what a Medical Management System is all about. It facilitates quick retrieval of patient information to create various records, such as categorization by demographic factors like gender, age, and so on. Among the medical management system's features are medical billing services, a streamlined method of handling all aspects of patient billing and collection, including calculating and processing payments and issuing bills. It's also simple to generate daily, monthly, annual, or custom reports. 2. Electronic Health Records Building a high-performance digital infrastructure for your health center is possible with the help of all-encompassing and user-friendly web-based electronic medical record software. Compared to using paper records, this greatly facilitates the reduction of errors. You and the patient may ...

OMFIF and EY | Sep 27, 2022 More effective and efficient policy-making can be realised by a public finance management system that places transparency and the seamless sharing of data at its heart. A PFM system should ensure that funds reach their intended recipients and are used for their intended purpose. And it must give the central budgetary authority accurate and regular reports of how its resources are being used, providing it with the information necessary to formulate and design fiscal policy. See:  KKR Partners with Securitize to Launch Part of Health Care Fund on Avalanche’s Public Blockchain The advent of digitalisation promised simplification and efficiency. However, since each entity involved in the finance management and budget delivery process uses their own systems, the consequence is often a huge duplication of effort — financial and nonfinancial reporting conducted anew at every level, requiring manual reconciliation. This duplication wastes time and resources. A more automated process would not only cut down on this, but also reduce the incidence of costly mistakes. A key challenge in the construction of an efficient PFM system is to address these problems. Table of Contents Improving public policy and delivery:  More effective and efficient policy-making can ...

Guest Post | Sep 27, 2022 The mobile app development process, key choices, prices, and typical blunders are all described. This post is for you if you are a start-up founder, management at a firm trying to innovate, or a fledgling entrepreneur with a killer app concept (or anybody who is not an app developer but needs to grasp the issue). What Exactly Is a Mobile App? It's a simple question, but with the line between mobile applications and mobile-friendly or responsive apps and websites becoming more blurred, it's worth responding quickly. A mobile app is a kind of software program that is specially built for usage on smartphones and tablets. Because these devices use different operating systems (OS) than laptops and desktop computers, mobile applications are intended to work with the Android and iOS (iPhone) operating systems. Simple Step-by-Step Guide to Creating an App 1. Development of a Business Strategy Creating an application without a thorough business strategy is a dangerous undertaking. Without a defined approach, you risk both your reputation and your money. As a result, the first and most significant step should be to develop a company plan. You must do the following to do this: Determine ...
