GIVEAWAY – Espace MicroCaps X Hardbacon

With the holiday season approaching quickly, Espace MicroCaps, in collaboration with Hardbacon, is pleased to give away 8 individual versions of “Not another boring course about investing” (total value of 800$!), an online course for anyone wishing to learn the basics of investing in the stock market, regardless of their level of knowledge.

At Espace MicroCaps, education has always been at the core of our mission. By publishing educational content on the blog and by organizing networking events with speakers, our goal is to help our readers improve their knowledge and investment skills. We believe that a thriving community of Québec stock market investors contributes to spreading good investment ideas and ultimately helps build everyone’s portfolios.

Hardbacon is on a mission to turn investing in the stock market a simple and profitable process for everyone. To achieve that, the fintech start-up is developing a mobile app that will allow anyone to invest on the stock market without getting lost. On its website, the company helps Canadians pick robo-advisors and brokerages (among other financial services) through its easy-to-use comparators. Finally, Hardbacon educates Canadians about investment through various initiatives such as an online course, an online magazine, a newsletter and an encyclopedia.

Given that Espace MicroCaps and Hardbacon share a common mission of contributing to the financial education of Canadians, this collaboration came naturally.
