Vancouver, BC – 360 Capital Financial Services Group Inc.

We believe the success of FrontFundr in launching their Crowdfunding website, the successful funding of three investment opportunities, with four more opportunities currently offered – certainly validates our 360 Investment Escalator™ process.”

As CEO of FrontFundr and Silver Maple Ventures, a registered Exempt Market Dealer (EMD), and co-founder of the Equity Crowdfunding Alliance of Canada – he has been working on bringing equity crowdfunding to the investing public for over five years. His Canadian and European experience in the financial, investment banking, and management consultancy is a valuable asset and provides mutual benefits for both our companies”.

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.”

Vancouver, BC – 360 Capital Financial Services Group Inc. (CSE: TSZ, www.360capital.ca), a company providing a broad range of financial services including capital raising, corporate finance advisory, merchant banking, IPO consulting, and insurance – announced their investment in Silver Maple Ventures’ Equity Crowdfunding Portal website FrontFundr.com was recently successfully launched.

Early in 2014, 360 Capital’s management recognized the importance of Equity Crowdfunding as a disruptive financial technology business model in private equity capital formation. To position the company at the forefront of this exciting opportunity, 360 Capital invested in Silver Maple Ventures, a start-up company that was building the FrontFundr.com website and seeking approval from the British Columbia Securities Commission to operate an Equity Crowdfunding Portal with online compliance technology. Silver Maple Ventures’ FrontFundr website is now officially launched with local and national Canadian media following this revolutionary shift in venture capital and private capital funding. And in the short period of time since the website was launched, it has already raised over $700,000 for its listed investment opportunities.

360 Capital’s strategic investment in online Equity Crowdfunding is part of a comprehensive plan to capitalize on the changing capital markets in Canada and globally. With the continued popularity worldwide of Crowdfunding, securities regulators are democratizing investment opportunities that previously were only available to accredited investors and high net worth individuals. The liberalizing of these investment opportunities has been underscored by the fact that on May 14, 2015 British Columbia and six other provinces announced the “Start-up Crowdfunding Exemption” for the public. And effective June 19, 2015, the United States passed the Jobs Act Title IV – also called Regulation A+, which allows the public to invest in US and Canadian private equity.

“There is a global fundamental shift in the capital market formation for early stage companies and with it comes exciting new investment opportunities for the general public,” according to John Gan, 360 Capital’s CEO. “The combined impact of additional investor interest and liberalization of securities regulations around the world will create significant growth. It was recently reported in a Forbes article that the World Bank estimated that Crowdfunding would reach $90 billion by 2020 and that if the trend of doubling year over year continues, we’ll see $90 billion by 2017” (Forbes Article, June 9, 2015).

John Gan continued, “360 Capital is positioned to tap into this business opportunity on a number of fronts. These include our investment partnership with the FrontFundr Equity Crowdfunding Portal, our recent Exempt Market Dealer approval for 360 Securities Ltd. and our proprietary 360 Funding Escalator™. We are proud and excited about the development of this funding ecosystem, which we believe can provide our early stage venture clients with a one-stop funding and liquidity solution, from start-up to IPO.”
