CFB  News Wire , New York, NY  June 17th, 2014

Crowdnetic, a leading technology-driven provider of information and data solutions to the global crowdfinance marketplace, today announced that Perot Jain, LP, has selected the company for seed funding. The investment fund recently was launched by Ross Perot, Jr. and Anurag Jain to support emerging and high-potential technology-based companies.

“Crowdfunding has rapidly grown from simple peer-to-peer lending to become a complex global phenomenon, and Crowdnetic brings essential transparency and stability to the marketplace,” said Perot Jr. “While the industry itself is still emerging, it already has attracted global attention as well as investors large and small. Crowdnetic is the clear leader in their field and stands at the forefront of the sector’s tremendous growth potential.”

The leadership team has more than 15 years of experience developing complex and customized data-intensive solutions.

“The leaders and developers at Crowdnetic truly have revolutionized this sector and played key roles in developing essential analytics solutions and providing normalized market data,” said Anurag Jain. “Just as important, they have a clear roadmap to bring even more solutions to market to help crowdfunding platforms and investors take advantage of this dynamic new approach to lending and investing.”
