Wave has hatched a platform connecting artists with their fans and using a crowdfunding approach to shows to make it easier for bands to tour where they have a following. Toronto is the litmus test.
With plans to grow to 150 people over the next six months and an announcement that it’s on track to raise $20 million ARR by the end of the year, Wave has become one of Toronto’s notable growth stories.
This week on The Disruptors, co-host Bruce Croxon sat down with Kirk Simpson, the co-founder and CEO of Wave, to discuss its free cloud-based accounting solution for small businesses and how the startup transitioned into a FinTech company with a global reach.
