Start-Up Crowdfunding prospectus exemption

BC Startups Can Now Raise Equity Through Online Crowdfunding Platforms

BC Startups Can Now Raise Equity Through Online Crowdfunding PlatformsCROWDFUNDING ARRIVES IN BRITISH COLUMBIA!

Under the new Start-Up Crowdfunding prospectus exemption, BC entrepreneurs and startups can now gain backing through online crowdfunding portals, without the need to file a prospectus.

This is a great opportunity for startups looking to tap into a new major source of capital!

As a general rule, a company must file a prospectus with the securities regulatory authority in each province or territory in which it intends to distribute securities. This can be both costly and time-consuming.  Consequently, to date, start-up companies have not been able to sell equity to investors through crowdfunding.

Under the new Start-Up Crowdfunding prospectus exemption, private businesses which have not previously filed a prospectus, will be allowed to offer residents in British Columbia, along with those in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, various types of securities through online crowdfunding portals, without having to file a prospectus.

Time Management Workshop- Create the Right Results!

Let’s take a look at some of the effects of poor time management and see if any ring true:

  • The ‘P’ word!  PROCRASTINATION and, ultimately, wasted time.  Distractions galore, such as surfing the internet, creeping facebook, or researching the virtues of e-commerce (read: shopping Ebay/Amazon/ModCloth – OK, maybe that’s just me!) all contribute to your NOT accomplishing what needs to be done and completing important tasks.
  • Inefficient workflow.  Keeps you in a perpetual state of reacting: putting out fires and darting, flame-haired (and I don’t mean ginger!), from one demand to another.
  • Missed deadlines.  All the scrambling and inefficiency inevitably leads to not meeting your deadlines- “whoooooosh”, as the say!
  • Poor quality of work.  Yup. Simply put, you can’t exist in chaos and be at your best – bottom line.

Let’s be honest.  There are very few of us that can claim we haven’t suffered at least some, if not all, of the above.  Time management and organization is challenging. The fact is, cramped schedules and missed deadlines often leave us feeling overwhelmed, drained and, ultimately, not as productive as we know we can be.

The difference between maxed out and achieving the results your after can simply come down to a few new tools for the ol’ time management tool box.

Instructor Charlotte Ferreux of Thrive Leadership brings 20 years of valuable entrepreneurial experience as a core member of the team behind Lululemon’s rapid growth from 2003-2010. Ferreux’s speciality lies in her ability to help entrepreneurs and managers leverage and grow their business through their people.

On June 8th, Ferreux will spend the day in Trail for this high-value workshop providing time management tools to increase your productivity, achieve desired results and impact your workplace and projects with more organization and, let’s yell it from the rooftops, LESS STRESS!
