Need to raise capital for your business? – www.venturemarket.ca

Need to raise capital for your business? Have a great idea? Need capital to take your business to the next level? Need capital for your company to acquire another business? Exit Strategy or succession?

Trying to raise capital can some sometimes be daunting and challenging. According to The Millennial Disruption Index, “71% of millennials would rather go to the dentist than listen to what their banks are saying.”

Rethink and Diversify recognized an opportunity for a regulated online direct investing portal. We wanted to provide the do it yourself investors with an opportunity to research and select opportunities to best suit their needs. Venture Market provides that suitability that every investment must be evaluated and meet the suitability guidelines for the investor and the investment product chosen. www.venturemarket.ca is a regulated online crowdsourcing portal that is registered to conduct business in the following jurisdictions: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario.

The following benefits are:

1) Convenience – connects to the investor to the investment instantaneously.

2) Accessibility to suitable investors – through the registration process and the suitability requirements of an Exempt Market Dealer, only the investors that are suitable to invest in your offering will be able to view your offering.

3) Telling your story – You get to create a 1 to 4 min. “explainer video” about your venture/business and why it is a good opportunity and what sets you apart from all of the others. *Important – video must be approved by R&D Securities Chief Compliance prior to being posted.

4) Maintain control/consistency in telling story – Anyone who has played the childhood game telephone knows that a story changes quickly from person to person after each time it is repeated. At www.venturemarket.ca you have an opportunity to have consistent message every time to investors.

5) Investors are able to invest in registered plans – Sometimes you’ll find that one investor who will take on the full investment. Far more likely, you’ll need several investors. The ability to access RRSP and TFSA dollars is a huge advantage when pooling from several investors. (Assuming that your investment is RRSP/TFSA, etc. eligible).

6) Streamlined due diligence – If your investment makes it onto the portal it means it has passed the due diligence requirements of a Canadian Exempt Market Dealer. This is a vigorous test of your investment.

Sincerely,

Jason Park

Press Release – Venture Market by Rethink and Diversify

Rethink and Diversify recognized an opportunity for a regulated online direct investing portal. We wanted to provide the do-it-yourself investors with an opportunity to research and select opportunities to best suit their needs. Venture Market provides that suitability requirements must be met before an investor can complete their investment in the product chosen. Venture Market is a regulated online crowdsourcing portal that is registered to conduct business in the following jurisdictions: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

For the investor – they go to the website (www.venturemarket.ca) and fill out information to register. They then can browse and research all the investment opportunities that are available to them based upon suitability. After this, the investor can initiate the investments and complete the online investment forms for the investment of their choice. At this step of the process, the trade will be submitted to compliance for review. Pending compliance approval, the investment will be made in the opportunity chosen. This again goes back to investor suitability. The financing closes and all appropriate documents will be forwarded to all the investors. Congratulations you now own you’re very own private capital investment (most investments are RRSP and TFSA eligible).

For the issuer (investment) – they go to the website (www.venturemarket.ca) and they fill out information to register. They will then be contacted by a Rethink and Diversify (venturemarket.ca) representative to begin their due diligence review. Pending approval of the review the issuer will be listed on the portal for investment. Some of the documents requested from the issuer depend upon industry standards and help to determine investor suitability. Once the minimum investment is reached, the financing can close and the investment dollars are transferred to the company. Congratulations go and execute on your business and strategy!!

Some of the investment opportunities that venturemarket.ca will be targeting are business sectors such as: tech-companies, real estate, land, farm land, construction companies, start-ups, established businesses, mortgage investment corporations (MIC), bonds and debentures, real estate investment trust, royalties and limited partnerships. This can vary from the pharmacy on the corner of the street to a tech company needing to do a multi-million dollar raise.

So if you are interested in either investing in a business or….if your business or idea needs an investor/capital for any reason….go to: www.venturemarket.ca

This has been the culmination of Rethink and Diversify’s vision that began in early 2016 and could not have been achieved without the combined efforts of Roger Grona (Firebird Business Consulting Ltd.), William McNarland (Eiffel Peak Capital), John Scarfe (CEO, Points Athabasca Contracting), Michael Rorquist and Rethink and Diversify Securities Inc. shareholders. We are looking forward to 2017 and beyond. Exciting times ahead…..this gives the opportunity for all of us to be Entrepreneurs!!
