We recently had the pleasure of working with NEO, a bold and disruptive capital markets fintech company based in Toronto, through our Mission2Masks program. If you haven’t heard of them before, take note! This is a company on a mission to make Canadian capital markets better, and they’re taking the industry by storm.
Team. Community. It's a win-win for all.
NEO is comprised of the NEO Exchange, a senior stock exchange that – like King & Bay – seeks to elevate every detail in the client experience.
NEO Exchange provides a better public listing experience for capital-raising companies, and a level playing field for investors. NEO also offers a fully-automated private placement platform – DealSquare – making private markets more accessible than ever before.
President & CEO of NEO, Jos Schmitt, is a no-nonsense kind of guy. With an illustrious career spanning more than 30 years in the financial sector, Jos is a serial entrepreneur – with a twist. He is hell-bent on the idea that you can do what is right while still running a commercially viable business. He has proven this is possible at NEO, time and again.
Most recently, NEO placed an order of non-medical face masks, made here in Canada, through our Mission2Masks program as a safeguard during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our world has turned upside down in the past few months,” explains Jos, “but at NEO, our commitment to our team and community remains constant. When we learned of an opportunity to protect our team while supporting a local business that had retooled to stay afloat during the pandemic, we jumped at the chance.”
Through King & Bay’s Mission2Mask program, NEO purchased high-quality, reusable masks for their entire team, while funding additional masks for donation to St. Michael’s Hospital. “It’s a win-win for everyone,” notes Jos.
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
Wearing a mask isn’t about protecting yourself. It’s about protecting each other. And now, more than ever, it’s important to support local. We encourage our counterparts in the business community to step up, come forward, and do what it takes to rebuild our city and community. It’s the right thing to do.
