Erin Ventures
Blake Fallis

Working with Frontier was a great experience! They were very professional and efficient. When a trip was planned in a particular city for either a conference or meetings, we would call Ari or Jeff and give them our availability. Within days we would be presenting our story in front of some key people who were genuinely interested in MetalCORP Limited projects. For the price you pay per meeting you can’t go wrong!

Genevieve Riva
Investor Relations, MetalCORP Limited

We are very pleased with the entire team at Frontier – they have gone above and beyond what was promised and have introduced Kilo Goldmines to a broad base of investors and potential investors. Frontier is arguably the best group to partner with on investor relations and communications.

Imran Patel

FronTier has been able to connect us with precisely the types of contacts we were looking for yet with enough variety to explore different options. Most importantly, they put us in front of groups that were looking for companies like us. FronTier has expanded our network with invaluable contacts in about 25% of the time it would have taken us and with much better results. If good business contacts are what you’re looking for, FronTier has them and they aren’t afraid to use them.
