Crowdfunding is a method of raising funds that is growing rapidly around the world. Globally, crowdfunding platforms raised an estimated US$5 billion in 2013 and are expected to raise over US$9 billion in 2014.
- Equity crowdfunding is a new process in NZ. It lets Kiwi companies raise funds by offering shares to the public online, and helps them to harness the power of their crowds to accelerate growth.
- Equity crowdfunding is also exciting for investors – it enables everyday people to buy shares in companies that were previously inaccessible to the public.
- Snowball Effect is leading the way in New Zealand, and will be launching in August.
Josh Daniell from Snowball Effect will present on this exciting topic, followed by plenty of time for questions and discussion. Drinks and nibbles are provided.
