Vancouver, BC – 360 Capital Financial Services Group Inc. (CSE:TSZ, www.360capital.ca), a company providing a broad range of financial services, announced that 360 Capital successfully organized and recently held a three-day Canadian Capital Market event in Taiwan. As part of the event, 360 Capital participated and led a Canadian delegation whose mandate was to source companies with innovative and disruptive technologies, and to encourage them to “Go Global” by utilizing the Canadian Securities Exchange as a platform for accessing North American and European markets.
Taiwan Officials Roll Out the Red Carpet
Organized by 360 Capital, the delegation was headed by Richard Carleton, the CEO of the Canadian Securities Exchange www.thecse.com, and included professional participants from the capital markets sector including accountants and lawyers, as well as a British Columbia Public-Private Partnership organization. Highlights of the trip included official visits to the Taiwan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Taiwan Financial Supervisory Commission, the Taiwan Stock Exchange www.twse.com.tw/en/, and the Taiwan Small Medium Enterprise Administration. An additional focal point of the event included the signing of a MOU between the Canadian Securities Exchange and the Taipei Exchange www.tpex.org.tw
First Annual CSE Taiwan Mixer Held by 360 Capital and Microsoft Taiwan
As part of the event, 360 Capital in collaboration with Microsoft Taiwan, organized the First Annual CSE Taiwan Mixer. This mixer was attended by 42 Taiwanese companies, and included members of the Canadian Trade Office in Taiwan. The Canadian delegation was also the main focus of a Taiwan Tech Venture Club event attended by 200 participants. For this event, Richard Carleton was the keynote speaker. Members of the delegation, including 360 Capital’s CEO, John Gan, held a panel discussion centered on “Utilizing Canadian Capital Markets To Grow Your Business”. For the event’s finale, the delegation met with a number of local companies interested and considering going public in Canada.
Connectivity is a Democratization Technology which Helps Promote Globalization
“The successful conclusion to this trip was the result of 15 months of development and evangelizing the benefits of the Canadian venture public market to Taiwanese technology companies who seek to scale and grow their innovations. Prior to 360 Capital’s marketing and outreach efforts, the Taiwanese business and investment community was not aware of the Canadian Securities Exchange or Canada’s historical business tradition of financing early stage companies through the public markets,” commented John Gan, 360 Capital CEO. “We are optimistic that with the success of this event and with plans for taking future delegations to other areas in Asia, 360 Capital will be instrumental in introducing exciting new and innovative technology companies to Canadian capital and our public markets. These introductions would benefit investors, issuers and bring new innovations to Canada and North America.” John Gan further stated, “We live in an era of globalization where connectivity is a democratization technology. With Taiwan’s leadership in innovation as ranked by the World Economic Forum, combined with Canada’s number two world ranking in the Global Entrepreneurship Index – bridging Taiwanese technology innovations with Canadian business acumen is a powerful and logical combination.”
