The 2nd annual Crowdfund Global Expo MAY 28th, 29th

CrowdFundBeat News Wire,

There is no doubt that technology is revolutionizing every aspect of the financial services industry and the market is taking notice in a big way. Worldwide venture capital investment in the fintech sector has grown four times faster than the rate of overall venture capital investment in the last three years, according to a recent Accenture study. With the recent IPOs of Lending Club and Ondeck, increased API connectivity, mobile device proliferation and borrowers’ increased use of online platforms, many investors and consumers alike believe that 2015 will be the year that fintech comes of age.



With so many changes occurring in a rapidly growing market, Coastal Shows, the producers of the Crowdfund Global Expo (CFGE) series, have expanded this year’s main conference to cover multiple aspects of the thriving financial technology industry. The conference will bring together global leaders from the world’s leading platforms with dedicated panels on Europe and Asia. The panels will cover innovations, case studies and lessons learned within the following industries:

Marketplace/P2P Lending
Real Estate
Alternative Finance
Bitcoin Infrastructure
Online Investment Platforms

Kick-off the FGExpo by attending the San Diego Marketplace Lending Meetup in the Gaslamp District. Co-sponsored by Coastal Shows, First Associates and Dealstruck. Featured speakers will be: – Eric Thaller, V.P. of Investor Services, Prosper Marketplace. Matt Burton, CEO, Orchard Platform and Larry Chiavaro, EVP & Principal of First Associates will host while guests enjoy refreshments.
