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.”
