In an age where online capital formation is rapidly evolving, more and more high achieving equity crowdfunding companies are looking to Initial Public Offering (IPO) to take the next step in their business growth while aiming to provide liquidity to investors.
According to Statista the Digital Capital Raising market is set to hit US$66.26bn in 2023, with a CAGR of 3.27% propelling it to US$75.36bn by 2027. As the global investment community steadily aligns itself with the opportunities offered by digital platforms, the journey from crowdfunding to IPO is becoming more lucrative.
Andrew Dix Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Crowdfund Insider, leads this insightful webinar and will interview leaders from the fintech and financial services sectors to delve into the route to a smooth transition from early-stage crowdfunded venture to a publicly traded entity.
Panellists include Richard Carleton, as CEO of the Canadian Securities Exchange since 2011, has been instrumental in leading the CSE to become a global exchange leader in the cannabis industry, setting records in new listings and capital raised, and is recognised as a top influencer in the cannabis sector and a key speaker on early-stage company finance globally.
"The fact that you can provide liquidity for early stage investors, seems to be a very compelling proposition.” Said Carleton.
OTC Markets Group Director Jason Paltrowitz will join Carleton. Paltrowiz spearheads initiatives that provide over 1,200 companies on the OTCQX and OTCQB Markets efficient ways to raise capital, access U.S. investors, and simplify the challenges of being a public company.
“When leveraged properly, Reg A offers a faster, more efficient, cost-effective and less burdensome path to the public markets." Said Paltrowitz.
Mat Goldstein, CSO and Co-Founder at DealMaker will also join the panellists. Goldstein recognised as one of North America's most innovative lawyers by the Financial Times, plays a pivotal role in DealMaker's executive leadership team, leveraging his extensive legal expertise and business development experience to address intricate business challenges, scale operations, and drive revenue growth.
“Raising capital online follows the same trendlines as eCommerce more broadly - it represents a shift from traditional methods of buying and selling towards the internet as the dominant medium of communicating and transacting.” Said Goldstein.
