Issues Surrounding Venture Capital, Initial Public Offering (IPO) and Post-IPO Equity Financing for Canadian Small and Medium-Sized Businesses (SMEs)

Equity financing is a vital component of overall financing for SMEs in Canada and the equity financing research program now being initiated by Industry Canada will provide insight into how access to such financing can be improved in the years ahead. The purpose of this study is to develop the issues surrounding equity financing for SMEs in Canada through the venture capital, initial public offering (IPO) and post-IPO stages of development. These issues will then become the basis for the development of future research projects to be undertaken as part of the Industry Canada research program.
