        “Copyright” By Jonathan B. Wilson CrowdFund Beat Sr. Guest Editor, Partner, Taylor English Duma LLP The impact of crowdfunding on real estate finance and deal-making has been one of the hottest topics of the past year.[1]  With the advent of crowdfunding, real estate developers and investors have multiple pathways to finance their projects and even to plot their exits.  But in many ways the impact of crowdfunding has not yet arrived.  Crowdfunding for real estate is still in the early stages and may take several detours along the way to its final destination.

The Equity Crowdfunding Paradox

By Jorge Sanchez III Partner, Nouvantage.com, Crowdfund Beat Guest Contributor, Crowdfunding is a broad classification used to categorize a variety of modern digital funding activities aimed at engaging wide networks of people.

The uncertainty of the outcome that the business pursues gives rise to the primary barrier to investment, information asymmetry. Investment decisions are information driven and based…

Daft or Deft – Trump the National Debt

By Steve Cinelli , CrowdFundBeat Sr. Editor, @stevecinelli Can the political narrative get any stranger, and in many ways, even incredulous?   First off, the country is undergoing an election season wherein the two front runners are disdained by the majority of Americans.  One (the Dem) purports to have experience, but seriously, she merely has had “exposure”:  yes, a nice (planned) resume, but has she actually accomplished anything as a statesperson or legislator?  Ask about “her” treaties or “her” laws or initiatives that have translated into real progress or meaning, domestically or abroad. Seems to be a goose-egg. But give her credit for marketing…  Then the other…

Because of this, all business owners should have a working knowledge of securities law.       What are Securities? Essentially, a “security” is defined as…

New Academic Research on Crowdfunding

CrowdFund Beat News Wire, PRESS RELEASE California Management Review Publishes Special Issue on Crowdfunding Popular opinion suggests that major crowdfunding platforms serve to democratize the process of innovation, enabling entrepreneurs and creators in a way that could not be supported under traditional models. But emerging research paints a more nuanced picture. The popularity of crowdfunding among entrepreneurs and investors has opened up new opportunities that would not have been possible in the pre-internet era. For example, pre-sales on Kickstarter allow would-be creators to get a sense of demand for their product before investing heavily in development and manufacturing. Other crowd-based platforms like LendingClub actively seek to…

Coming to Roost?

By Steven Cinelli, CrowdFunding Beat, Sr. contributing Editor About three weeks before the Lending Club IPO, I had written a piece concerning the valuation placed on the fin tech platform. Similarly, the review might apply to the other alternative finance platform, OnDeck Capital, which also made their public entrance.    The basic thesis was whether the market was valuing such new forms of alternative finance as technology companies or within the body of financial services.  As shared, if one looks at the metrics used to value finance stalwarts like Wells Fargo or Visa or Capital One, which participate in the same markets, we see multiples of profits, revenues and asset…

If Crowdfunding is the New Day Trading, Look Out

Paul Volcker famously said the only financial innovation to improve society in recent memory was the ATM. Not everyone agrees. In an essay earlier this week on the evolution of money and finance, GigaOM founder and venture capitalist Om Malik argued that crowdfunding will be the new day trading, the latest financial innovation to “cut costs and [drive] wider participation in a previously closed and clubby market.” Advocates of crowdfunding had better hope not. To be clear, Malik isn’t talking about Kickstarter where funders make a donation that acts like a pre-order. He’s talking about the public buying stock in private companies, something that may…
