Peekabo Beans Using FrontFundr to Raise Money Through $1,000 Investments
Peekaboo Beans and FrontFundr have joined forces to raise capital for Peekaboo Beans in its next evolution of growth.
FrontFundr, an online investment platform, will be hosting Peekaboo Beans, a children’s playwear brand founded in 2006 in Vancouver, pre-listing capital raise on their platform. Peekaboo is targeting $1.25 million raise at a $5 million valuation.
“FrontFundr gives us access to a much larger pool of investor and allows our customer base that love our product so much to be part of the growth of our company,” Traci Costa, CEO of Peekaboo Beans, says. “Just as we are creating a play revolution, FrontFundr is creating an investor revolution, a perfect match.”
Peekaboo Beans shares are now available for purchase through the FrontFundr platform.
FrontFundr Launches to Provide Investors and Companies Access to a New Capital Market
Financial technology platform FrontFundr has launched, “unlocking a new capital market” and allowing regular people to invest in private companies, according to its founders.
FrontFundr is a registered financial services firm that combines advanced compliance technology and digital media, under existing investment legislation, to give both new and seasoned investors ready access to stringently screened, market ready businesses—prepared and guided from business pitch to deal completion.
“We present our investor community with only the highest quality deals that have undergone our stringent in-house due diligence and advanced online compliance process, set to standards beyond Canadian regulatory requirements,” the company says.
FrontFundr’s investment opportunities are typically early-stage, mission-driven ventures seeking $200,000 to $2 million in capital investment. They have positive social impact and are predominantly from one of three key sectors: arts & entertainment, energy & environment, and technology.
“We’re giving regular people a chance to sit in the pitch seat and act as ancillary dragons,” says Peter-Paul Van Hoeken, CEO. “We’re providing ordinary people with access to carefully screened investment opportunities, and entrepreneurs with access to more capital to support their growth.”
Previously, most Canadians were locked out from investing in young companies due to absence of an accessible market place and regulatory restrictions. On the other side, most early-stage companies looking for capital to grow their businesses had limited to no access to capital markets. This model left gaps in the growth-potential of early-stage companies, and it cut average citizens out of these investment opportunities.
“We are offering an open market connecting seasoned investors and retail investors with stringently screened companies and supporting the entire investment process from pitch to securities purchase. Delivering better capital and better deals to all parties,” says Van Hoeken.
FrontFundr is a fully compliant, registered exempt market dealer (EMD) and conducts stringent due diligence on all business investment deals presented to its investor community, and ensures both investors and entrepreneurs understand the risks and rewards associated with entering into a transaction.
