Exploring equity crowdfunding: Seeking input from entrepreneurs and investors
Feb 26, 2013 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
101 College Street
On December 14, 2012, the Ontario Securities Commission published OSC Staff Consultation Paper 45-710: Considerations for New Capital Raising Prospectus Exemptions. The paper explores whether the Commission should adopt any new prospectus exemptions that may assist capital raising for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), while protecting the interests of investors. It sets out four concept ideas for new prospectus exemptions, including a concept for an exemption to allow crowdfunding, which is subject to limits for SMEs seeking to raise capital and investors seeking to make equity investments on a crowdfunding portal.
