8020 Connect and FrontFundr enter into an Agreement providing 8020 Corporate Clients a Preferred Partner to Access Private Capital Markets.
May 17, 2018 - Calgary, Alberta, Vancouver, BC, 8020 Connect Inc. (“8020”) and Silver Ventures Inc. (“FrontFundr”) are pleased to announce that they have entered into a Preferred Partner Marketing Agreement that will promote their respective industry-leading services.
8020 is a Calgary-based social platform connecting shareholders and industry participants to executive management. 8020’s clients host corporately-controlled investor/shareholder groups, allowing a company’s leadership and communications teams to engage interested parties in a corporate educational dialogue; and providing users (current and prospective shareholders) with a curated forum within which to exchange views.
FrontFundr is an online investing platform that empowers Canadians to find and make direct investments in the private companies they believe in - and become stakeholders in their future. FrontFundr's online exempt market dealer (EMD) status plus its modern technology lets users across Canada easily invest in early-stage and growth companies.
8020 and FrontFundr will continue to provide their services independently.
“We believe that the 8020 Platform is uniquely positioned to offer many of our clients a powerful tool to engage with their shareholders, stakeholders and other interested parties. Equally, our online investing platform will help 8020’s corporate clients raise capital in the private capital markets”, noted FrontFundr’s Founder & CEO, Peter-Paul Van Hoeken.
“For our part”, commented D’Arcy Funfer, 8020’s President, “this is a key relationship for 8020, as 8020 does not get involved in financial transactions, as many of our clients have come to us looking for support in raising capital. Providing access to such an excellent platform and talented group of people is very compelling for our clients.”
About 8020 Connect Inc.
8020 Connect is Canada’s newest social media platform and investor community which supports a largely abandoned micro and small cap public market sector in Canada. With the consolidation of independent investment dealers, tougher regulations regarding investor suitability and the dominance of online brokerage firms, this once vibrant sector is no longer able to effectively reach a broader retail investment audience. 8020’s unique shareholder and investor community offers corporations and investors a professional and controlled environment to engage in dialogue and the transfer of information in real-time to shareholders, interested investors and participating investment professionals.
About FrontFundr: FrontFundr is an online investing platform that empowers Canadians to find and make direct investments in the private companies they believe in - and become stakeholders in their future.
