Already present in Europe and Australia, Public Equity crowdfunding is a new form of investment in Canada. While there are, to date, two projects through the Canadianplatform FrontFunder, one of these initiatives, however, was meant for qualified investors, since the minimum investment was $ 5,000 (which exceed the limit allowed by the AMF). The second project, aimed to raise $ 25,000 without grassroots campaign, a quarter of our minimum goal of $ 100,000.
In the US, the first projects eligible for crowdfunding capital under the JOBS Act will not be launched until January 29. A Quebec-born company, Dubuc Motors, will launch a campaign mixing the Public Equity Crowdfunding and Equity Crowdfunding.
