Joint Committee Session by:

Session Synopsis:

Crowdfunding websites are designed to connect entrepreneurs in need of funding with those who have money to invest or provide. Whether your client is looking to invest in, or provide funding to, a new business, or is a start-up needing funding, then a crowdfunding website is a great place to visit. Different websites offer different types of funding and support, with varying types of pitch, like equity, rewards-based or debt peer-to-peer crowdfunding. This session will examine regulatory and other challenges and potential opportunties arising from crowdfunding, as well as the responsibilities of the crowdfunding organizers. The session will also address crowdfunding through blockchain and ICOs.
