The 3rd annual CrowdFunding Summit took place on Feb 28 – March 1, 2017 in Toronto, bringing together hundreds of companies, investors, service providers and portals / platforms. Summit has grown to become Canada’s largest conference in the rapidly growing internet finance and fintech crowdfunding industry. This year’s theme was Innovation Finance: Fintech + Funding and included 75+ speakers, 30+ sessions, 12 live pitching finalists, and keynotes from PayPal Canada, SeedInvest, Funded Today and Fineqia (ex-London Stock Exchange). It was another great success with 400+ companies looking for capital, investors/funders, crowd platforms, regulators, advisors, service providers and media. Content was rich and provocative with speakers from Hong Kong, London, Silicon Valley, Chicago, New York, and across Canada. This was a conference for the ‘Future of Financial Services’: companies raising capital, financial innovators, investors, entrepreneurs, professionals, builders, and connectors.
