Ideavibes founder and CEO, Paul Dombowsky, and CATAAlliance (Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance) CEO John Reid, announced today the launch of an attitudinal survey focused on determining what Canadians think about crowdfunding and their willingness to participate as a funder or a start-up / social enterprise seeking funding.
According to Paul Dombowsky, operator of the year old Fundchange (www.fundchange.com), “We know there is a great deal of hype around crowdfunding, and we are playing a role in the effort to encourage the provincial governments to adopt supportive legislation for start-up funding. We also know from our experiences with Fundchange that Canadians’ funding behaviour is different online than the Americans or British. We wonder whether our conservative nature is getting in the way of attracting broad based support for crowdfunding – whether it be for start-ups, social enterprises or charities.”
