CALLING ALL COMPANIES, INVESTORS & FUNDING PLATFORMS! Help Define the Future of Alternative Finance Crowdfunding in Canada


NCFA Canada (About Us) | June 22, 2017

This is a vital time for the alternative finance crowdfunding sector in Canada.

The crowdfunding sector in Canada offers tremendous potential to innovate and improve capital formation, storage and the distribution of resources by leveraging technology to unlock transactional inefficiencies, provide more liquidity and help small businesses, the backbone of the Canadian economy, to commercialize and globally compete in modern digital times.  While market volumes grew 48% from 2013-2015 and is predicted to reach $190 million in 2016 (download 2016 NCFA report), Canadian markets continue to fall behind international competitors due to market stifling regulations (eg., US $35.2 billion in 2016, Chicago-Booth/Cambridge report).
