AGORACOM is very proud to announce that we are once again sponsoring a Cambridge Conference. This time, we are sponsoring the 2009 World Resource Investment Conference on at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver, BC on June 7th and 8th.

The 2009 event promises to be an incredible conference for both investors and public companies as it features an world class line-up of speakers, covering all types of direct investments in resource public companies, speculative investing, resource exploration, oil & gas, world outlook, investment strategies and more.

AGORACOM is ideally situated in the middle of all the action at booth #131 so if you plan to attend please stop by.


In addition, I will also be conducting a Speaker Workshop on Sunday, June 7th at 12:30 PST called, “Learn To Use Blogs, Twitter and RSS Feeds To Make You A Power Investor”. For years, CEOs and IROs have ignored them as irrelevant and having quirky names, but with tens of millions of investors using them, public companies incorporating them and even the SEC green lighting them for investor relations, you now need to understand how social media tools can supercharge your market knowledge.
This workshop will teach you how to use social media to cut through clutter, get the information you need directly to you and connect with the smartest people on the planet.

See you in Vancouver!


AGORACOM Ranks 57 In Profit 100 Ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies

Posted by AGORACOM - Mitch at 10:31 AM on Monday, June 1st, 2009

TORONTO, June 1st, 2009 – AGORACOM North America’s largest online investor relations community and social networking website for serious small and micro cap retail investors, proudly announces that it has been selected by PROFIT Magazine as one of Canada’s fastest growing organizations.

Measured against a running five-year revenue growth, AGORACOM ranks 57th overall in the 21st annual PROFIT 100 ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies by PROFIT Magazine using results reported for the period between 2003-2008.

“We are thrilled to have our company achieve the #57th position on the PROFIT 100, and honoured to have received this recognition in spite of a tough economy,” says AGORACOM Founder George Tsiolis. “We are especially proud of the fact we are a Web 2.0 organization that has demonstrated a successful business model beyond mere advertising, Web 2.0 is not just about Facebook, YouTube and social networking sites. We are using the web to deliver real services to real customers, while generating real revenues and profits. I hope others Web entrepreneurs can follow our lead.”

In 2008 over 1.3 million retail investors from more than 200 countries visited 7.9 million times to read 96 million pages of small-cap news and information.

“It was clear as day to me the investor relations model for small-cap public companies was inefficient and broken. Small public companies needed a faster, more cost-efficient way to communicate their message to current and prospective shareholders around the world. The Web was the solution,” added Tsiolis. “Today, that vision has translated into millions of investors communicating with hundreds of small-cap companies via a moderated online community. I want to deeply thank our clients for believing and now benefiting from this great model. We pioneered the space, are still the leaders and now expanding into Europe, China and a mobile platform, so I look forward to being part of The PROFIT 100 for many years to come. Finally, this achievement serves as a real credit to our management team, employees and families, all of whom have sacrificed so much to make this happen.”

Ranking Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies by five-year revenue growth, the PROFIT 100 profiles the country’s most successful growth companies. Published in the June issue of PROFIT and online at, the PROFIT 100 is Canada’s largest annual celebration of entrepreneurial achievement.

“The PROFIT 100 are an inspiration to entrepreneurs at all stages of growth, from startup to major corporation,” says Ian Portsmouth, editor of PROFIT. “Their business practices and product innovations are exemplary of how businesses can succeed in uncertain times”.

Online Investor Relations Model Makes AGORACOM ‘Greenest’ Firm In The Industry

Posted by AGORACOM - Mitch at 1:23 PM on Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009


AGORACOM is proud to announce the results of our Carbon Footprint findings in recognition of ‘Earth Day.  Our digital delivery of investor relations makes AGORACOM the most ‘environment-friendly’ investor relations firm in the industry.

In 2008, we delivered investor relations on behalf of 85 companies to more than 1.3 million investors in over 200 countries -  and we did it without having to take planes, trains and automobiles to meetings all over the world.  In addition, the digital delivery of investor relations means we didn’t need to senselessly cut down a single tree to produce collateral materials that unfortunately end up in a recycling bin within 24 hours.


The results from an online Carbon Footprint calculator show that AGORACOM has a carbon footprint of 76.7 tonnes per year, which translates into 5.11 tonnes per employee.  To put this number into perspective, the average Torontonian’s carbon footprint measures 8.6 tonnes per year, lower than the average American’s footprint, which measures at about 11.9 tonnes.

 “While we realize online calculators measuring carbon footprints only offer an approximate indication of an organization’s emissions output, the results are relative and we challenge any investor relations firm with more than 50 clients to beat us”, Tsiolis added. “As a pure online investor relations firm, I am very confident that our carbon footprint is significantly lower than any traditional IR firm. Our use of Web 2.0 tools such as electronic shareholder forums, blogs, webcasts, video and other tools allow AGORACOM to fill the information void created by the lack of small-cap coverage in the media while keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum.”


  1. No Micro Meetings -Thousands Of Investors Amalgamate and Communicate In Online HUBS.
  2. No Traveling – Clients Are Not Forced To Travel Around The World To Meet Investors.
  3. No Printing – 99% of Collateral Information Is Produced and Consumed Digitally.

For those whose inner environmentalist speaks loudest on April 22, visit the Earth Day Network to make a public commitment to take an environmental action.

Happy Earth Day,


Speaking at Mesh ’09 – Canada’s Leading Web Conference

Posted by AGORACOM at 2:58 PM on Monday, April 6th, 2009

I’m proud to once again announce that I’ve been invited to speak at Mesh ’09, Canada’s leading Web Conference, being held at the MaRS Centre in Toronto on April 7th & 8th.

I will participate in the panel discussion called “Managing Community Online”, which will also include other very successful web entrepreneurs who have made a career out of creating, managing, and monetizing online communities.

In my experience, online financial communities are more passionate and vibrant than any other kind of community because they deal with people’s financial well-being. As such, our experiences in building a successful community should be extremely beneficial to those in attendance. I’m grateful to our entire community for helping AGORACOM get noticed and to the Mesh team for inviting me to participate.

I attended the inaugural Mesh Conference as a Web 2.0 rookie but was anxious to learn about the space, sort out the useful tools from the trendy ones and apply them to help create a sustainable business model. Given the incredible knowledge I gained at Mesh, it’s only fitting that I give back to the conference and help others build great communities of the future.

On March 3rd, 2009, AGORACOM reported 2008 traffic results that included:

• 1.31 million unique visitors
• 7.9 million visits
• 96 million page views

Mesh is the result of event organizers believing that Toronto deserved to have a world-class conference where people with an enthusiasm for the Web could talk about how it is affecting the media, marketing, business and society as a whole.  My hat goes off to the following gentlemen for making Mesh a reality:

The panel discussion on “Managing Community Online” is on April 8th and is scheduled to begin at 4:10 pm. To view or download the Mesh schedule click here.
