Crowdfunding is up significantly.
Crowdfunding allows anyone to become a bank, and lend a small amount, even $25, to a small business.
Crowdfunding is expected to lend $5 billion this year, that’s equivalent to the SBA 504 loan program this year.
And be aware of the new term “equity crowdfunding.” Still in its infancy, $116 million, these platforms will allow anyone to play in the venture capital sandbox.
Does anyone have a case study where you’ve partnered with a crowd funding platform?
