Equity Crowdfunding Week is an annual international event showcasing the most innovative companies raising capital in the private markets.
Toronto-based equity crowdfunding platform FrontFundr announced this month that it will represent Canada at the event, which will take place for its second edition in Los Angeles this September.
“We look forward to representing Canada at 2022 Equity Crowdfunding Week,” stated Peter-Paul Van Hoeken, founder and CEO of FrontFundr. “As Canada’s leading equity crowdfunding platform, it’s important for us to be at the forefront of industry innovation.”
Since 2015, FrontFundr has hosted over 100 successful equity crowdfunding campaigns, which account for startups raising a combined $120 million. More than 35,000 investors have used the platform, according to the company.
“2022 Equity Crowdfunding Week is our answer to the economic downturn,” said Lorel Scott, COO of StartupStarter, which is organizing the event. “As the world is bracing for impact and the financial markets are being shaken up, Equity Crowdfunding is uniquely positioned to highlight some of the most innovative companies in the private markets while helping thousands of entrepreneurs weather the storm.”
The event includes three days of hybrid programming and activations throughout the city of L.A., with startup exhibitions across five domes and six industry tracks: Startups, Cleantech, Real Estate, Cannabis, E-Commerce, and Web3.
In addition to being in-person, the event offers online-only tickets.
