Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) and TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV) have launched TSX Ignite, an initiative designed to support the growth and development of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Canada.
TSX Ignite provides Canadian companies and entrepreneurs, at various stages of growth and across all sectors, with information about building great businesses. The program features live events in seven cities across Canada, kicking off in Toronto on April 30, 2014.
The events will provide insight relevant to the growth plans of SMEs, including helpful tips on ways to raise capital and factors to consider when growing a company and hiring advisors. Each event will feature a local success story to help inspire and coach attendees.
The online component of TSX Ignite complements the content from the live events and provides accessibility to all Canadian entrepreneurs. Online courses and other resources offer expertise from high-profile Canadian business leaders. Webinar topics include: attracting investors; why governance matters; best practices for financial controls and growth; and acquisitions for growth.
Over 20 law firms, accounting firms and investment banks collaborated to provide free expertise on all aspects of the program.
