Business Networking. Crowdfunding.
June 27, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
You are invited to join us Monday, June 27 for an exclusive Business Networking Event. Don't miss this opportunity to make new business connections and build your network. Everyone will have the chance to make an Elevator Pitch. FREE to attend.
This event will help identify crowdfunding strategies and broaden your business knowledge, whether you are a new entrepreneur or have been in business for years. Crowdfunding has grown exponentially in just a few years, providing essential capital to start-ups. A number of great, innovative companies have made the leap to sustainability through successful crowdfunding campaigns. And there are new opportunities coming for entrepreneurs with the launch of equity crowdfunding in Ontario in late January 2016. However, many campaigns are unsuccessful. How do you get noticed? What strategies are most effective? How much time and money does it take to launch and manage a campaign?
Join us to hear from those with extensive experience in crowdfunding. Listen to Adam Paulin, founder of the venture, Thin Ice, who has hard lessons to share about his failures and successes with crowdfunding.
And please join us to support ‘The Coolest way to lose weight’ campaign ...

If innovation is involved then you can be sure I'm interested! I raised almost $800,000 CAD through crowdfunding for Thin Ice, my tech-enhanced weight-loss clothing line. Now I help other companies do the same! I provide crowdfunding campaign management services of all levels of involvement and support campaigners by helping them to find the appropriate resources before and after their campaign. I'm also passionate about social impact and am also interested in meeting others who want to make a real difference in the world with the power of business
