We’re thrilled to partner with TMX Group to offer a special GLOBE 2014 workshop for technology startups. Entitled “Funding the Growth of Clean Technology: Accessing Public Equity Capital in Canada”, this workshop will see representatives from the Toronto Stock Exchange discussing how and when cleantech companies can use the public markets to raise equity capital.
The renewable energy and cleantech ecosystem in Canada is one of the strongest in the world – supported by academic innovation hubs, government programs and incentives, and strong public and private funding models. On the back of this strength, the Canadian capital markets have played a key role in funding the growth of cleantech companies. In fact, there are now more publicly-traded cleantech companies in Canada than in any other country in the world. Please join representatives from the Toronto Stock Exchange for a discussion on how (and when) cleantech companies can use the public markets to raise equity capital. What types of companies have been successful? What deal structures have been used? What timelines, issues, and costs do companies need to consider? And what are the lessons learned for cleantech companies that are looking to raise public equity capital?
