More and more, organisations are turning to non-traditional ways to raise much needed capital. One of the most successful tools in recent times has been the use of crowdfunding platforms. Crowdfunding has been used around the world by producers to fund movies and plays, politicians to raise campaign funds, charities to get donations and, of course, companies to raise capital. While crowdfunding has taken off in a big way here in Australia, especially in the start-up space, until recently the regulatory framework restricted its use for the traditional ‘shares for investment’ model. However, new changes will now allow for equity crowd funding. This seminar discusses how crowdfunding works, its use in Australia and certain other jurisdictions, the current regulatory framework in Australia and the exciting changes that have been introduced.
