The Financial Post reports that a shopping mall in Mississauga will be partly financed through crowdfunding and its one of the first projects to raise funds this way. The funding platform NexusCrowd says it’s the first in Canada to directly link with institutions at the development stage and is now allowing investors to put a minimum of $10,000 into the project.
