Crowdfunding—The New Seed-funding for the Collaborative Economy

Barry E James
Forget the talk of hype – here’s the actual data from 40 sectors across 222 countries worldwide where seed-funding from the crowd has already created an unprecedented wave of innovation while offering hope, and a route to an independent livelihood, to millions across every nation.
But why and how is crowdfunding able to achieve what lending and equity can’t, and in many cases never could, in supporting innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship? What does this mean for the sharing economy, the world and us all – and the options open to our own and generations to come?
You will learn: How it works, what it means for innovation, investing, entrepreneurs and the wider economy – right here, right now – and how to access this engine of change.
