Money Talks | Exploring Alternative Financing Strategies

About the Event:

Financing a startup? This panel will focus on exploring alternative forms of financing such as brokered financings, angel networks, royalty and recurring revenue based financing and debt financing. Venture capital money and non-dilutive government funding programs are often the most visible forms of funding in the Canadian startup ecosystem and the easiest for entrepreneurs to educate themselves on. While both can be excellent sources of funding for the right companies at the right stages of growth, there are many other ways to finance a startup.

Who Should Attend:

We encourage both entrepreneurs and investors to attend this event.

Key Topics Covered:

  • Alternative means of raising capital
  • When different forms of financing may be a fit
  • Raising funds in a smaller community
  • Thinking strategically about financing your company


This panel will be moderated by Michael Macaulay, Partner at Lawson Lundell LLP. Michael’s background in mergers and acquisitions, corporate financing transactions and experience working with investors, startups and emerging companies will bring some additional context and perspective to the discussion.
