Klondike Strike is a mining-centric equity crowdfunding portal. Watch President and CEO Chad Williams explain exactly what that means and why those in the resource space should be interested.

Resource Investing News spoke with a lot of interesting companies at Cambridge House International’s recent 2015 Vancouver Resource Investment Conference, but one of the most unique was Klondike Strike, a mining-centric equity crowdfunding portal.

Explaining what exactly the company does, President and CEO Chad Williams said, “equity crowdfunding is a new way for companies to raise money online.” It differs from traditional crowdfunding, which has been around for a number of years, in that “investors actually get something back. They get shares that they can trade.”

He believes it’s a good fit in particular for companies in the resource space because it gives them “exposure to many other investors that they normally wouldn’t get exposure to. People in, say, remote parts of the country or people that normally wouldn’t invest in resources. In a way it’s the democratization of investing.”
