Entrepreneurs and the business community are invited to Fredericton on March 19 to hear guest speakers explain ways of raising money for New Brunswick companies. The lectures are presented by the Financial and Consumer Services Commission as part of East Coast Start Up Week.

“We have invited speakers from the TSX Venture Exchange, Deloitte, Cox & Palmer and East Valley Ventures as well as two New Brunswick entrepreneurs to share their experiences in helping develop exit strategies and raise capital,” said Jeff Harriman, capital markets specialist with the commission.

The event is part of the commission’s ongoing capital markets development initiative entitled Fullsail.

Attendees will participate in discussions about the opportunities available to raise capital. This information may be useful to entrepreneurs, shareholders and professionals who assist entrepreneurs with the corporate aspects of their business.

There is no charge for the event, which takes place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Fredericton Convention Centre, 670 Queen St, Fredericton. Participants may register online or by calling 506-643-7805.

“Access to capital is the lifeblood of any growing business,” said Louis Doyle, vice-president (Montreal), of TSX Venture Exchange. “TSXV provides early-stage companies with public venture capital to fuel their business strategies and the Fullsail event will provide key insights into how emerging companies and entrepreneurs can tap into these opportunities.”
