Fintech startup Tiptap opts for equity crowdfunding as venture capital chills

Touchless payments firm Tiptap Pay wants to build 50,000 more of its point-of-sale units, and it’s turning to crowdfunding to do it. 

The Burlington, Ont.-based company is seeking to raise a $2-million Series A round from angel and retail investors through FrontFundr, a Canadian equity crowdfunding site.
