Happy 3rd Anniversary CrowdFundBeat 2016 is “The Year of Equity CrowdFunding”

By Sydney Armani CEO & Publisher of CrowdFund Beat Media Group.

Happy New Year!  “2016 The Year of Equity CrowdFunding” 

It has been an active three years since we introduced CrowdFundBeat, as the voice of the crowdfunding industry.  In recognizing, the development of this nascent and disruptive methodology, we find it increasingly important to be a comprehensive beacon of news, opinion, and trends, as its impact is already being felt within the world on entrepreneurial endeavor and financial services.  We are in the early innings of this game, as we observe that the “crowd”, originally defined as natural persons, is now characterized by institutional investor participation.  Is this still a “crowd” or has this become better described as alternative finance, or even rung on the ladder of the growing “shadow banking” environ?  Technology is a great enabler, and we have seen that applied to private capital formation, breeding value for many.

Our vision with CrowdFundBeat is to educate, inform, entertain, and report on the various nodes of crowdfunding.  As part of our effort, we have reported on foreign theatres, such as Europe, Canada and Asia, not just the US.  We find fascination and are impressed that the non-US expedition of crowdfunding mechanisms taking place at a faster pace, possibly because of more lenient  regulatory frameworks, but an observed and necessary mandate of funding small business for future economic growth for local economies.

During our three years, we have produced three conferences on the growing subject matter, complementing our daily webzine.  We are excited about the upcoming conferences, in March 3- 4  2016  at the Computer History Museum, and in May 5th and 6 2016 a unique roundtable session at the National Press Club in Washington DC,
