Founders of high growth companies should consider all of their capital raising options as all have pros and cons. Traditional VC funding has several advantages but also potentially onerous terms. Public venture capital – raising typical growth capital of $10–100M on the public markets – also have several benefits and considerations.
Last year, TSX and TSXV issuers raised over $40B, putting them in the top 10 of capital markets worldwide, which is impressive considering the size of the Canadian population! Approximately 40% of TSX daily trading originates from outside of Canada (a majority of that coming from U.S. sources), providing access to international investors.
As an alternative to private venture capital, a TSXV listing can provide the benefit of raising small, subsequent rounds of capital. TSXV companies raised $6.8B in 2018, with an average financing of $4M. These are small public companies… and that’s why we like to refer to this market as “public venture capital”, as companies are accessing rounds of capital similar to the typical VC route of Series A, B, and C rounds.
