While the financial crisis has limited the availability of credit for growing businesses, it has also spurred innovations in financing growth.
This event examines the potential for the crowdfunding of equity investment. Following the success of reward based crowdfunding facilitated by sites such as Kickstarter, we explore how the application of the crowdfunding model to equity investing can play a role in providing much needed capital to growing business.
The event will present Nesta's new research, exploring the opportunities and challenges equity crowdfunding is currently facing. This will be followed by a panel discussion featuring equity crowdfunding platform operators Darren Westlake (Crowdcube), Jeff Lynn (Seedrs), Karen Darby(CrowdMission) and Ami Shpiro from Innovation Warehouse.
