Peter-Paul van Hoeken, Co-founder and CEO of Canada’s largest investment crowdfunding platform, FrontFundr, doesn’t think so.
My parents were really good at giving me advice about most things. Most things that is, except investing. I guess they were brought up being told that you don’t talk about money. We never had any serious conversations about investing, which never bothered me until recently. I had reached that point in life (finally) where I had a good job, paid off my student loan, and had some rainy day money in the bank. It all left me wondering, what’s my next step?
FrontFundr is seeking women investors to help us grow. We are currently raising capital using our own platform, and have set a goal to increase our percentage of female investors from 30% up to 50%.
