Equity Crowdfunding, Angels and VCs – UK and global trends
June 28, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm BST
Equity Crowdfunding (EC) is a process that enables people to invest in unlisted companies (early stage and SME) in exchange for equity. It is arguably the most exciting model of online alternative finance. P2P lending may dominate the sector, but EC is growing faster. Furthermore, the model is rapidly evolving, bringing angels and firms in the investor mix.
The UK is leading the world of EC. The US has lagged behind, due to regulatory restrictions, but new rules are aiming to change that. The rest of the world is hoping to copy the UK formula.
Join us and crowdfunding experts at this event to learn about the latest developments in the equity crowdfunding space that will examine the following: equity crowdfunding data: trends in the UK and elsewhere; equity crowdfunding and the involvement of Business Angels/ Venture Capitalists.
