FrontFundr made an important decision for our future this year: in order to continue to help more Canadian businesses grow, we needed to have a physical presence in the country’s financial capital. And so it was decided that myself and Steve Smith would relocate from Vancouver to Toronto to open our third office.
Since the inception of FrontFundr, we’ve been advocating for inclusive and accessible private capital markets. Every day our platform is unlocking investment opportunities in private companies for a wider investor community, while providing those companies with better access to capital.
Back in June we talked about our take on security versus utility tokens. If you missed it, you can read that post here. Now we're taking a look at Simple Agreements for Future Tokens (SAFTs) as a way for issuers to structure their offerings.
Here at FrontFundr, we talk to a lot of companies determined to issue utility tokens. Unfortunately (and often after enduring high legal bills to structure the potential utility token offering) most of those companies realize it's nearly impossible. Read on to find out why:

FrontFundr is hitting new heights as Canadian companies continue to turn to investment crowdfunding to raise capital. We have now taken part in raising a combined $10 million in capital for 18 Canadian businesses.
At just before ten in the evening of Saturday, August 31 in the year 1602, a notary knocked on a large wooden door and entered a candle-lit room. Inside sat the directors of the Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie, or the Dutch East India Company, which had been founded earlier that year. The bookkeeper of the Dutch East India Company, Barent Lampe, was seated behind an imposing volume with deckle-edged pages and a vellum cover: the Amsterdam Chamber’s subscription share register. It had been lying open all month. Saturday the 31st at midnight was the closing date for subscriptions, and there had scarcely been a quiet moment all day. Under the watchful eye of the notary, the bookkeeper checked each entry and added up the amounts.
Peter-Paul van Hoeken, Co-founder and CEO of Canada’s largest investment crowdfunding platform, FrontFundr, doesn’t think so.
