Through our website, residents of most Canadian provinces can now invest in private companies that are in the early stages of development. We specialize in what is known as “equity crowdfunding” where investors purchase securities or other securities of corporations. All of the companies that raise money through Stockosaurus intend to apply to have their securities trade on a Canadian stock exchange so that you can eventually sell your securities in the public market.
For start-up and early-stage companies that are seeking to raise money to fund their business development or to broaden their shareholder base with a view to eventually going public, Stockosaurus provides you with a means of obtaining financing without the substantial accounting, legal, and regulatory costs involved in public offerings. Even if you are unfamiliar with how crowdfunding works, we can help you get started.
Be aware that even if companies intend to go public in this manner, there is no guarantee that they will be successful in doing so. Accordingly, your investment in companies that are selling their securities through the Stockosaurus website is considered very risky and you should be able to bear the loss of your entire investment.
