On May 8, 2014, I presented a webinar for http://www.SmallBusinessSolver.com on the legal ins and outs of crowdfunding in Ontario.
Crowdfunding is a game changer for small business finance. Between $3-5 billion has been raised in crowdfunding efforts worldwide, through over 300 portals. 45 of those portals are available to Canadians. Traditional crowdfunding works by donation or reward.
The latest and greatest is that crowdfunding will soon be available in Ontario to sell equity to the general public. This is going to make selling equity less expensive and simpler to do.
