Richard Swart, PHD, is at the center of all things crowdfunding. He’s a speaker, author, researcher and advisor, and every year he leads the Annual Academic Symposium on Crowdfunding Research. A couple months ago, I had the chance to sit down with him for some scintillating discussion on the last two years in crowdfunding, including the difference between U.S., South American, Chinese, and European crowdfunding markets—and crowdfunding fraud.
