Parallels between ICO’s and the early days of Equity Crowdfunding

Parallels between ICO’s and the early days of Equity Crowdfunding

By Paul Niederer,  Founder Raiseworth. (Here is a post from 2015 when I started pushing for Crowdfunding to be moved to the Blockchain) If I go back to 2008, in the very early days of Equity Crowdfunding, the ASSOB platform has already been operating for around four years. This meant there were plenty of learnings in place even before any other equity platforms had started. There are parallels here with ICO’s as in the early days many people that approached us to raise capital on ASSOB had not much more than an idea or a sketch on paper. We learnt as the years went by that the existing regulatory…

Setting Up an Efficient Crowdfunding Platform

Setting Up an Efficient Crowdfunding Platform

BY Rachael Everly ,CrowdFund Beat Guest Post, Crowdfunding platforms are a product of technological advancement. However at the end of the day they are a financial solution and their success is dependent on the economic situation at a given time. Many businesses prosper when the economy is booming and all is good. Crowdfunding on the other hand has always prospered when the economy is not doing well, and even during the worst recessions. During the last recession of 2008, there was a great lack of confidence among banks. This led to a drying up of sources of finance for the small business owner and for…

The piece underscored how FinTech will mend America’s flawed retirement system and foster the growth of “digital” investing. This initial report drew attention to the growing necessity for a low-cost, high speed, autonomous retirement solution that would meet the demands of today’s alternative micro-investor. Most significantly, the piece summarized the two distinct individual retirement account prototypes – the Brokerage IRA and the…

Crowdfunding: Can It Work for Brick & Mortar?

By Cheryl Clements, Crowdfund Beat Guest Post, Founder + CEO of PieShell – Crowdfunding for food + beverage, Having a store front or restaurant is expensive, especially when you’re just getting started. Between build-out and equipment costs, starting inventory, licenses, fees, and working capital, starting a brick and mortar business can easily add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. It’s because of this that many people say that rewards-based crowdfunding isn’t a good option for brick and mortar businesses, but we beg to differ. Crowdfunding is a great option for restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, and more (if it’s done in the right way and on…

White Paper Report: Expanding into Cannabis-Related Investing

White Paper Report:  Expanding into Cannabis-Related Investing

Crowdfund Beat Media, VIA Folio, the private securities division of Folio Investments Inc., has decided to support capital formation for certain businesses engaged in the cannabis sector.

We began exploring this idea after broker-dealers contacted us about our willingness to support the fundraising efforts of certain cannabis-related businesses. Prior to reaching a decision, we studied and carefully considered the complex legal landscape and public policy issues surrounding the growing legalization movement for cannabis. Any use of…
