I have been following the crowdfunding movement across the country since the JOBS Act was announced last April 2012, and I am an enthusiastic supporter of the start-up community in Montreal.  I look forward to participating in NCFA Canada initiatives and hope to contribute to the advancement and success of this exciting and emerging new industry, said Scott Loong.
